Stamford Bridge

Stamford Bridge is one of the most important and iconic stadiums in the world. Ever since 1905, it's been home to Chelsea FC, and at the beginning of the 20th century was the biggest stadium in the country.

“The Bridge”

This is how the stadium is commonly known. One of the stadiums with the longest history in the country, and a mecca for English football, home to one of London's biggest teams: Chelsea FC.

It dates back to 1877, when the stadium was conceived to be used by Fulham FC, another of the clubs in the area. But they didn't want to move, and London Athletic was created, years later to be called Chelsea Football Club.

As well as being the home of "the blues", Stamford Bridge has at various times been home to the English national team and has hosted the finals of the FA Cup on various occasions.

The stadium has been developed over the years, and its capacity has fluctuated as a result. There are currently 41,841 seats, making it the 10th largest in the Premier League. But back in the 1930s, with standing room, 82,905 people saw the game between Chelsea and Arsenal. And even to this day that remains the second-largest attendance at an English football game.

Legendary

Stamford Bridge has played host to hundreds of epic games, with legends like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, John Terry and Gianfranco Zola having graced its pitch.

And the success has come, with the club having won a number of trophies and in recent years becoming one of the most successful clubs in England. The Premier League of 2016/17 and the 2012 Champions League victory over Bayern Munich both live long in the memory.

In total they have won 8 premier leagues, 8 FA cups, two Europa Leagues, one Champions League and one Super Cup.

Historic

The tour of the stadium is one of the most popular in England, and one of the best in Europe.

During the tour you can visit some of the most important and exclusive areas, including the press room, the tunnel and even the changing rooms. And you can have your picture taken next to the pitch as if you were playing for the club!

With the multimedia experience, visitors can feel the same as the players just before heading out onto the pitch, enjoy images from throughout the club's history, and more.

The impressive Chelsea Museum is decorated with all manner of archive images, and videos of the club's greats, all accompanied by kits used by legends like Hernan Crespo, Michael Ballack and Petr Cech.​
