Albion's new away kit will be worn this afternoon against Chelsea.

Albion will wear the new away kit for the 2020/21 season in today’s game with Chelsea at the American Express Community Stadium.

Graham Potter’s team will wear the yellow-and-blue strip for the friendly match against Frank Lampard’s side in front of 2500 home supporters.

The yellow-and-blue strip is an exclusive new design from Nike, and like our home shirt has a look and feel which reflects the club’s of the early 1980s.

Club partner American Express adorn the front, and the yellow shirt will be worn with blue shorts and yellow socks.

Get your hands on the 2020/21 away kit now.

Albion’s most-famous appearance in yellow was April 1983, in an FA Cup semi-final when they overcame Sheffield Wednesday.

Goals from Jimmy Case and Michael Robinson were enough for a 2-1 at Highbury, as the club reached their first Wembley final.

Albion’s players will be wearing squad numbers and names on the backs of the new-look shirts.

However, supporters are advised that any squad numbers being used this afternoon are still provisional.

The squad list will not be officially confirmed until early October, after the transfer window has closed.

The strip can be ordered in all sizes online now at the club’s online store.

For those attending the Chelsea game, it will also be available in store from 12pm-3pm pre-match and then 5-6pm post-match.

The stadium superstore will reopen for all customers from 11am until 4pm this Sunday and from 11am until 4pm on Bank Holiday Monday.
