English Premier League Club Chelsea Present New Stadium (Photos)

Chelsea have presented their plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge to Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

The proposed rebuild to increase capacity to 60,000 was presented in model form at a hearing at Hammersmith Town Hall on Wednesday.

The meeting is intended to deliver a final verdict on planning permission, with the council having already initially recommended that the application be approved.

The Mayor of London will then have a defined period by which to endorse or not the council’s permission.

Stamford Bridge’s current capacity is 41,663, making it the ninth largest club ground in England behind Manchester United, Arsenal, West Ham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Sunderland, Newcastle United and Aston Villa.

Rather than move site and build from scratch, though, the club have decided that redeveloping Stamford Bridge is their preferred option.
