The Chelsea fans were absolutely delighted as they walked in the Transfer Tavern this morning…
The redevelopment of Stamford Bridge has been a long-standing discussion point for the Chelsea faithful, with the Blues’ current stadium simply not big enough for the size of the club.
Many plans have been discussed, including, controversially, moving away from Stamford Bridge – but last night, Chelsea were finally given approval to rebuild Stamford Bridge – with the new stadium set to hold 60,000 fans.
Remaining at Stamford Bridge was key for many fans, with the Blues set to remain on the same location as they have since their formation in 1905 – and whilst it will mean moving away from Stamford Bridge for a few years – it will all be worth it in the end.
Set to open in the 2021/22 season, Chelsea’s redeveloped stadium looks incredible – and it would appear as though the local council agree. The voters were unanimous in their decision to allow the redevelopment, though it must be noted that the approval is just another step in a very long and complicated decision-making process. It is, though, a hugely significant move.
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans around the world are delighted – and many can’t wait for the new ground to open.
