Chelsea will NOT wear gold badge on kit in Premier League games following incredible Club World Cup win

CHELSEA will be BANNED from wearing a gold badge on their kits by the Premier League.

Victory in the Club World Cup on Saturday allows Chelsea to don a gold badge instead of their traditional blue and white.

But players will only be able to show off the new-look crest when The Blues play in the Champions League, starting with the visit of Lille later this month.

Chelsea could also feature the gold badge on their shirts in FA Cup and League Cup but will have to ask for special permission from the FA.

Premier League rules prevent clubs from making changes to their kits mid-season however, and that stops Chelsea from being able to introduce the new badge.

That might disappoint some of the squad, with Andreas Christensen revealing his excitement at being able to show off his world champion status.

He told Chelsea's media team: "With the Club World Cup, I know how prestigious it is.

"Growing up in Denmark, it's not the one they speak about the most but I've realised since coming here it's a big deal, and it would be good to have that gold badge in the middle of the shirt."

Meanwhile, fans now have the chance to add a FIFA World Champions 2021 badge for £6.00.

Chelsea will be able to wear the Club World Cup badge on their shirts until next year's competition, which they could of course be a part of if they manage to win the Champions League again this term.

The badge will feature only on first-team shirts – it is forbidden for the club to use it on training wear or retro shirts.

By winning the Club World Cup Chelsea joined an elite group of five European clubs to have won every major trophy.
