Chelsea could potentially play for four years at Fulham’s ground

Chelsea are allegedly looking at as stadium rebuild plan that will see them play at local neighbours Fulham’s ground for four years.

It all sounds like a bit of a crazy plan, but The Daily Mail are claiming that Chelsea are considering building a stadium that could cost up to £2billion and involve them playing away from Stamford Bridge for four years, either at Fulham’s Craven Cottage, Twickenham or Wembley.

We know that the new owners at the club want to have a bigger capacity stadium to play their football in, with Stamford Bridge just not being big enough to maximise revenue and income. But it’s also quite hard to build on and make bigger, so there are seemingly many plans being pondered by the owners.

The report claims Todd Boehly has informally approached fellow American billionaire Shahid Khan, the Fulham owner, about using his club’s ground.

One possibility is playing the majority of league games at Craven Cottage, with Champions League and category A Premier League fixtures played at Wembley or Twickenham.

  1. Why the hell would us play at Fulham, our City rival and a Stadium that won’t fit the 45000 capacity of our Stamford Bridge?
    For Pete’s sake!!!
    Bohely and Co. are looking to building a World Class Stadium in the enlargement of USA now top Stadiums and a capacity of over at least, 70000 people…
    Playing at Wembly has to be the direct choice to make our players realize the next level they are going to and starting to get adrift to become the team that all teams in the World fear!
