A new sponsor is set to be revealed.

Chelsea’s shirt sponsor, Yokohama Tyres, will step down from the lead sponsorship role next season – with a replacement set to be announced imminently. Although it is unclear how the deal was sourced, CSM Sport & Entertainment has been retained by the club to secure new sponsors. 

Yokohama’s decision to quit ends a five-year stint as the club’s main shirt sponsor. The Japanese brand signed the deal in February 2015. It is worth a maximum of £40m per year from 2015-16 to 2019-20. Yokohama will retain links with the club as the club’s Official Global Tyre Partner.
