Chelsea set to move away from Stamford Bridge to a new stadium with 60,000 capacity

BREAKING: Chelsea set to move away from Stamford Bridge to a new stadium with 60,000 capacity.

The Todd-Boehly-led group declared their Stamford Bridge renovation plan one of the cornerstones of their project when they launched their attempt to complete the Chelsea takeover.

It has since been rumored, meanwhile, that they are also thinking about leaving Chelsea FC’s storied home.

The Mail on Sunday reports that Chelsea is considering ideas for building a premier new stadium. One of the alternatives is to construct a new 60,000-seat stadium on a 40-acre site near Earls Court, which is close to Stamford Bridge.

When Roman Abramovich was still in charge in 2013, the proposal was initially taken into consideration. The proposal was rejected by Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

A source at Chelsea told the Mail on Sunday that it’s “not on the cards, but not impossible” to build a new stadium in Earls Court. Things are flexible.

In either case, Chelsea would require approval from the Chelsea Pitch Owners in order to leave Stamford Bridge.

If the team left the stadium without their consent, the shareholder group would be obliged to give up their ownership of the name Chelsea FC and the freehold of Stamford Bridge.
