Hi, I’m John Dykes. Welcome to the Premier League’s video guide to Chelsea Football Club. Here we’ll take you behind the scenes at the Stamford Bridge, we’ll give you an insight into the match-day experience, as well as other things to see and do in and around the club.
Based in the heart of west London, stands Stamford Bridge the home of Chelsea football club. The stadium is surrounded by the thriving cafes, restaurants and boutiques of the King’s Road. Any visitor to London will tell you Chelsea really does have a lot to offer and makes for a great day out.
Excellent transport links to and from the stadium make travelling around quick and easy, with the nearest London Underground stops of Fulham Broadway and West Brompton just minutes walk away.
The Blues as they are affectionately known were founded in 1905 and have spent most of their history in the top-tier of English football. The past decade has been the most successful period in the club’s history and has seen them win three Premier League titles in six years, including most recently, the club’s first Premier League and FA cup double.
The takeover by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich in 2003 has contributed to the club’s status as one of the dominant forces in world football. The high standards and quality of Chelsea extend to their training ground facilities in nearby Surrey, where these world class players have state-of-the-art facilities at their disposal.
Blue is definitely the colour as you enter the Chelsea Megastore so why not express your support for the club with a purchase of anything from team shirts to teddy bears. There’s always excitement and passion in the air on a Chelsea match-day as a sea of blue descends on Stamford Bridge and over 41,000 fans pack into the stadium... and they are just waiting for you to add to their number.
