Three has previously stated they are planning an announcement with Chelsea which will take place on July 1 ahead of the imminent three-year shirt sponsorship deal.
As previously reported, the British telecommunication company will reveal “something huge” to the Chelsea fans on Wednesday.
However, keeping a big announcement a secret seems unlikely when you have to put up giant banners outside the Stamford Bridge.
A picture showing a few Chelsea stars; Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Billy Gilmour and Marcos Alonso sporting the new Chelsea home kit with Three’s logo has been circulating on the social media.

The design looks similar to the ones previously leaked on the internet. It’s a simple design, with a touch of black on the sleeves, the sides and the neckline.
Is it this by any chance? 😉 pic.twitter.com/rlVabNeeWl

It remains unclear whether the new three-year shirt sponsorship deal will begin on July 1 or Chelsea will stick with the Yokohama Tyres until the end of the season.
Considering nobody could have expected the global pandemic situation, it’s unlikely there will be a shirt sponsorship change mid-season.
An early announcement, however, would not be a breach of contract.
There have also been fan theories saying the announcement will also feature Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech since the two Chelsea’s new signings are expected to arrive at Stamford Bridge on the same day.
