Chelsea are reportedly in the process of redesigning the club’s current badge, with club chiefs having been given the green light to do so. An exclusive from the Express claims that “plans are already underway to make adjustments to the current design” which was rolled out by Roman Abramovich 13 years ago.
The current Blues badge features a lion holding a staff, which is the Earl of Cadogan’s coat of arms. Their report claims that the lion is set to stay as part of the crest, but “adjustments are currently being made to the font as part of a freshen up”.
A source reportedly told the Express: “The crest is being redesigned. There won’t be massive changes but it’s being given a freshen up.” The badge was previously updated under Abramovich’s reign back in 2005, with the club opting for a more modern look and the text “CHELSEA FOOTBALL CLUB” as opposed to just CFC.
