History and description

The Stamford Bridge officially opened on the 28th of April 1877, but for the next 28 years it mainly served as an athletics venue. The owners of Stamford Bridge wanted a stadium that could host professional football, so they hired Archibald Leitch to design one. The stadium was almost completely rebuilt in 1905 and was subsequently offered to Fulham FC. Fulham turned down the offer though, and newly formed Chelsea FC moved in instead.

At that time, Stamford Bridge consisted of one covered seating stand and a vast open bowl of terraces covering the other three sides. An estimated 100,000 people could fit into the stadium.

In 1944, a new stand was built at the South End. Few changes were made until 1930, when new terraces were built at the Shed End, and, nine years later, when a small seating stand was built at the North End. In 1944, a new stand was built at the South End.

The highest attendance recorded at Stamford Bridge was in 1935 during a match against Arsenal. A total of 82,905 fans attended the match.

In 1965, a new covered seating stand was constructed at the West Stand. Redevelopments continued in the mid 1970s when the old main stand was demolished and replaced by the new East Stand.

The construction of the new East Stand at Chelsea Football Club had a large impact on the club's finances, leading to them nearly being forced into bankruptcy. The Stamford Bridge site was sold to property developers to pay off some debts, which almost resulted in Chelsea being evicted and forced to ground share with Fulham or QPR.

The club finally regained ownership in 1992, however no changes were made in the years between. In the meantime, the Taylor report had been published and Stamford Bridge was in urgent need of redevelopment.

In both cases, the new stands were much more expensive to construct and maintain, and they did not offer the same view. Work on new stands began in 1994 with the demolition of the North terraces. These new stands were much more expensive to construct and maintain, and they did not offer the same view as the old ones.

The reconstruction of the West Stand started in 1997 and was completed in 2001. At the same time, the East Stand underwent an extensive refurbishment.

Despite the fact that Stamford Bridge is still not a ground that can accommodate a large number of fans, Chelsea over the last decade have been looking to either expand Stamford Bridge or construct a new stadium altogether in order to meet the club's growing needs.

The club's attempt to expand the current ground turned out to be too complicated with the stadium being hemmed in by housing, so at first they explored different sites in West London for the construction of a new stadium. The most notable site they considered was the site of the Battersea Power Station, but their bid for the site failed in 2012.

Following their failed Battersea bid, the club turned their attention back to Stamford Bridge and in 2015 announced plans for the construction of a new stadium. That year, the first images were presented of a 60,000 all-seater designed by Herzog & De Meuron architects.

The project, set to cost over £500 million, was approved by the local city council and major of London in early 2017. The club currently hope to move into their new home before the start of the 2021-22 season. During the works, they would have to play their home matches elsewhere. Wembley Stadium and Twickenham have both been named as possible options.

How to get to Stamford Bridge

Stamford Bridge Stadium is located in central London in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The stadium is less than 2 miles south-west of Hyde Park and the Harrods Store. It is less than 3 miles south-west of Buckingham Palace. The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway. It is on the District Line and one can get to Fulham Broadway by taking a Wimbledon-bound train from Earl's Court Station, which is on the Circle and Piccadilly Line. Earl's Court Station itself is also within walking distance of the stadium.

Various buses pass the stadium on Fulham Road. These include line 14 (from Euston Square to Putney), line 211 (from Waterloo Station to Hammersmith), and line 414 (from Maida Vale to Putney Bridge).

Other buses that travel by the stadium vicinity include bus 11 (from Liverpool Street Station), bus 28 (Kensal Rise), bus 296 (Ladbroke Grove and Clapham Junction), and bus 391 (Richmond).

Chelsea does not recommend arriving by car on matchdays as there is no parking available. Limited paid parking is available underneath the stadium on non-matchdays.

If arriving by car, take the M4 (which turns into the A4) into the city. At Earl's Court turn right onto Earl's Court Road, and after about a mile right onto Fulham Road. After a few hundred metres, the stadium will be on your right.

As a member who attends every home game, I can attest to the West Stand being occupied by members and season ticket holders for the most part. The heated Upper West is best for winter games but Lower West provides the best close-up and personal experience.

I absolutely love Stamford Bridge stadium! It is one of the best stadiums I have ever visited. I am a Chelsea member myself, and as a result, I get priority access to tickets which is fantastic. I usually go to a few matches during the season. The atmosphere at the Bridge can be lacklustre, but I must admit that The Shed and the Matthew Harding stands are where the singing is at its best. The East and West stands are usually full of tourists and families, but the stadium tour is great - you get to go in the press room, the home and away changing rooms, the tunnel, the dugouts and even sit in The Shed's upper tier section on the tour! I highly recommend any football fan to visit Stamford Bridge!

Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium is a great place to visit. As a Chelsea member, I get priority access to tickets, which is fantastic. I go to a few matches during the season.
