Good News For Chelsea Fans: Plans For The New Stadium Are Set For Approval!

Chelsea have moved a step closer towards the final approval for their new stadium. The planning application of the new stadium is set to be submitted to the Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

Stamford Bridge’s current capacity is 41,663 and if all goes right the new stadium will have a seating capacity of 60,000. Currently, Stamford Bridge is the seventh biggest stadium in the Premier League and is well behind Old Trafford, home ground of Manchester United, in terms of capacity.

Earlier Roman Abramovich was planning to build a new stadium and had enquired about a lot of area including the Battersea Power Station but has decided to reconstruct the current stadium. The expansion will cost almost £500m and will be funded by the owner himself.

Chelsea have to find an alternate ground for up to three seasons to play their home matches. Wembley and Twickenham stadium could be an alternate option but Tottenham Hotspur will be occupying the Wembley for at least a whole season as work is undergoing to build their own new stadium.
