Coordinating royal blue Chelsea home shorts and white football socks were introduced in the 1960’s and remain a permanent feature today.

Whether your favourite footballer is the goalie, a defender, midfielder or striker the best place to watch them wield their magic is at the club’s home stadium – Stamford Bridge. Unlike many clubs who have played at several grounds the home of Chelsea football club is unequivocally Stamford Bridge, they have played there since their foundation in 1905. Initially opened in 1877, it was renovated in 1904/05 and again in 1998.
The stadium currently has a capacity of 41,631 making it the 8th biggest Premier League football ground. Over recent years there has been much discussion and speculation over the future home of Chelsea FC, due to location and access it would be difficult to expand the stadium infinitely, however, fans and shareholders and not keen on a move away from the Fulham Road site.
In January 2017, a proposal to redevelop the current stadium to give a capacity of 60,000 was given the go-ahead. The timeline at present suggests the new stadium will be ready for the 2020/21 football season, and that during the redevelopment phase Chelsea FC will play their home fixtures at Wembley Stadium, in North London.
