Stamford Bridge: has been legendary for years
Stamford Bridge opened its doors in 1877. London Athletic Club had been using the stadium until 1904, when Chelsea FC took over the stadium. The stadium is also used for conferences and Greyhound races. Loads of important matches took place at the stadium and Stamford Bridge has been renovated several times. Chelsea’s got plans to expand the stadium to 60,000, which would make it the third largest Premier League stadium in London.
Stamford Bridge stands
Stamford Bridge transformed to an all-seater stadium around 1990. It was no longer allowed to stand in stadiums in England, so every stadium had to be provided with seats. The stadium contains four stands: the Matthew Harding Stand, East Stand, Shed Stand and West Stand. The Shed Stand is known as the stand where die-hard fans can be found and families with children can have a seat at the East Stand. Season-ticket holders usually are at the Matthew Harding Stand, due to the amazing atmosphere here. This stand was named after a former chairman of Chelsea, who died during a helicopter accident.
