Stamford Bridge in the desirable area of Fulham, south-west London, is the home of Chelsea FC, otherwise known as the Blues. Famous throughout the world they were founded 110 years ago, in 1905, and have been playing at their cosy 41,837-seater stadium since this day. Prior to the financial input of their director of 12 years, Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Chelsea were known to be perennial underachievers. Since 2003 however, Chelsea FC has become Britain’s richest football club. Come and experience the magic of Chelsea FC for yourself, and buy your tickets at Ticketfinders International today! Chelsea is a force to be reckoned with. In the impressive 110 year history, they have notched up a smashing record of four Premier League titles; two second division titles (now Championship); seven FA Cup wins; four Football League Cup wins; four Community Shield wins; and two Full Members Cup wins. And that’s just at a national level. Add to that a UEFA Champions League win; a UEFA Europa League win; a UEFA Super Cup win; and two UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup wins, and it goes without saying that Chelsea is an exciting club to watch. Chelsea have a very prominent place in British popular culture, and you can find Chelsea emblems and merchandise just about anywhere you go. Chelsea FC and Chelsea fans have appeared in a number of films and TV shows (often owing to the notoriety of the Chelsea Headhunters firm), in countries as diverse as India and Montenegro as well as in the UK. When they released the single Blue is the Colour ahead of the 1972 League Cup final, with all the first team players singing, the song reached no. 5 in the UK singles charts. It has since been adopted by different sports teams around the world. Somewhat aptly, Chelsea FC was formed in the Rising Sun pub (now the Butcher’s Hook), just opposite the entrance to Stamford Bridge on Fulham Road. Other names considered for the club were Kensington FC, Stamford Bridge FC and even London FC! Before a modernisation in the 1950s, Stamford Bridge originally had a capacity of 100,000 people! The stadium has undergone various changes since then, and you can cheer on Chelsea from the East Stand, West Stand, Matthew Harding Stand or the Shed End.
