Chelsea Unveils Plan For New 60,000-seat Stamford Bridge

English Premier League champions, Chelsea have submitted a planning application to rebuild their current Stamford Bridge home ground from a 41,600 capacity to a 60,000 capacity.

A statement on Chelsea's official website confirmed the plan would be submitted to Hammersmith and Fulham council.
"A planning application for a new stadium at Stamford Bridge with an expanded seating capacity has been submitted. This follows a successful consultation process during which we received very helpful feedback.

This application will now be examined by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Full details can be found on their website at www.lbhf.gov.uk/stamfordbridgegrounds.

The main details of the application are:

- Stadium seating capacity to expand from 41,600 to 60,000 spectators

- An outstanding view of the stadium from every seat

- An arena designed to create an exciting atmosphere

- Direct access to and from Fulham Broadway Station, making travel more efficient

- Stadium facilities improved for every area

The planning process will last beyond the end of the season; if the application is granted planning permission there will still be a lot of work to do before redevelopment can start, including obtaining various other consents. We will inform you of progress through this process.

Thank you for your continued support," the statement read.

If you ever doubted Roman Abramovich's commitment to the club he bought in 2003, it's time you wake up as he will be financing this project with £500 million.

The rebuilding process is expected to begin at the end of the season and will go beyond that. It is not clear at the moment the venue which will serve as Chelsea's alternative home ground while the rebuilding goes on.
