Hi. Here is a first *rough* colour render. I've so many things to fix on this image, but thought I'd show you what progress has been made.

The design of the four new stands will take their inspiration not from the uniform style of most recent stadiums, but from the buttresses, pillars and gothic architecture of Westminster Abbey in whose

It'll be close to 65k. 2 Bridges, 1 to West Brompton and 1 to the back of Fulham Broadway. They will lower the ground. Wembley is looking the most likely temp ground.

Architects Journal is considered very reliable as it pretty much represents the entire architectural profession. Herzog & De Muoron are also very, very reputable as an architectural practice, not only for their stadium work but also Public Exhibition, Museum and Gallery projects around the world. They are currently working on the expansion of Tate Modern (and were the original architects for it's refurbishment) and are known among the profession for creating very iconic buildings. They recently narrowly missed out on the expansion of the Bernabeu.

Exciting news, just a bit.. hmm.. not worried but concerned as the area is really a limiting factor us. The real estate around SB is an absolute fortune, let alone the compensation costs the club would have to pay the borough or basically do something for the council to compensate.

Be great if we can extend to 60k though.

The allianz, what a stadium. I'd love it if we can light the stadium!

Allianz Arena landed in the middle of nowhere like a spaceship though..

Doubt we could do the same in a residential area, for the reasons aforementioned.

I think that maybe we should ask us to change the location of Stamford Bridge. I'm not saying we have to move, but maybe it's a good possibility to think about building a new stadium, with much larger capacity and where we can create commercial places in the new stadium and build a great museum our history. We are the first and only team in the City of London which has won the Champions League.

I understand it is emocionamente difficult to talk about this. For me it is also difficult to think of this, but if we want to compete with Real Madrid, Bayern and Barcelona, we have to obtain new economic income.

This is a very difficult subject to talk, Stamford Bridge is part of our history, we are the Stamford Bridge, but think about a change could give us the opportunity to improve our own history.

I remember the project of building a new stadium at Battersea Power Station (I think that possibility is totally discarded by the club, but I do not know if it's safe). But focusing on the architecture of the proposed stadium at Battersea Power Station was beautiful and with a similar culture to the English style buildings, so if we we did a new field, we, in my opinion, maybe we could mimic the type architecture Battersea Power Station and become the new Stamford Bridge part of the reference buildings in London.

I live in Madrid, and perfectly know the Santiago Bernabeu stadium of Real Madrid. This stadium is a real moneymaking machine. The Santiago Bernabeu has many of the most important restaurants in Madrid, an impressive museum (which is visited each year by 1 million people and is a tourist reference) with a tour of the entire field which is great and they have a capacity 81,000 seats.

But Real Madrid will rebuild their country and they will make a real revolution, which will make them earn them three times as many each year in economic income the amount they win now with their stadium. Its revenues are going to shoot and economic performance that they will take to rebuild their stadium will be spectacular.

In Spain the legal norms in construction of buildings are not like in England and in Spain is much easier to rebuild the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. That is why they do not have to change the location of the stadium Santiago Bernabeu.

I leave you a video of the new stadium if anyone wants to comment on this topic. I believe that the Financial Fair Play can destroy us if we do not make changes in our Club.

I know this topic is a very sensitive issue for any fan of Chelsea, but I think we all could speak quietly.

I hope I have spoken without offending anyone.

Regards.

supporter, the only issue is that there is very limited space to move in London to accommodate us. Our options are very limited and as football fans are very territorial. If Chelsea were to move to North or East London a lot of fans would be furious and the Chelsea Pitch Owners wouldn't allow such a move. (If we were to move without the CPO's permission we would be forced to change our name from Chelsea FC.)

There are only about 2-3 feasible locations that we could move to, but we'd have to act fast. Many sites in London are quickly being acquired as the development and property market is booming.

There was talk that if we were to move from Stamford Bridge that the stadium itself could sell for up to £1 billion due to the location. That in itself would completely fund a new state of the art 60k stadium and we'd still have profit.

It'll be interesting to see how it develops as something is bound to happen soon.

Thank you very much for your information, We Hate Scouse.

If I do not live in London and I know well the London culture (I think that to know the culture of a city or country, you have to live there a long time). Sounds complicated this issue, and certainly build a new stadium in a big city is practically impossible.

I hope and believe that Roman Abramovich and his advisers know how to manage change of the property market which is undergoing a big change now in London by what you have told me.

In Spain happened something very similar to this, early last decade one house could cost € 200,000 and a year later that same house cost € 1 million, and only two years later that same house was going to cost € 100,000. There were people who were ruined for that reason and others have become millionaires.

Maybe our team is waiting for the most opportune moment to make this great operation.

Thanks for the info, it's very interesting to learn more About London culture and About London.

Regards.

:lol: No, it's been in the news over the past few years. The club have constantly made it clear they either want to expand (if possible) or move. The fact they now have architects in means news is pretty imminent. I'd expect to hear something before the start of next season.

I wouldnt be against chelsea moving to kingston/esher that kind of way as a last resort to be honest, affluent up market and probably the second best place to be if sw6 is ruled out as a complete impossibility to rebuild, I have a feeling we are gonna try and do a complete rebuild of the ground and if the council cant make good on its promise to help the club expand then we are gonna be looking at where to move after that, as the club wont give up on expanding and as far as im concerned I do not want to move from upmarket to anywhere else unless it is upmarket, thats part of our tradition/dna/history what ever you want to call it, its also close to where the club chose to build our state of the art training facility, and there is plenty of easily bought land to build a new ground on.

Wouldn't be such a bad thing moving into Surrey at all. Majority of people support Chelsea, there's plenty of vacant land, plenty of railway that we could link up to and build a new station specifically for the club and there's no other teams based there.

I'd be in favour of that too. I'd love the club to have the room, and the planning permission, to build a prestige stadium which excites fans and players alike. I get the feeling that whatever we do at The Bridge would be no better than a serious compromise.

Out in the Kingston area transport is already good with rail links, many bus routes and the A3 & A24 linking with each other as well as with the M25. There might also be the opportunity for the club to build a dedicated branch extension of the tram service which currently runs between Wimbledon and Croydon. Lot's of political support for the Greens in that area and they'd probably love stuff like that.

One question in my mind though, is there really the room out there for building? I thought the restrictions were quite tight there too.

The problem is.. Chelsea Pitch Owners, right?

Kingston would be difficult, we should buy those horrible tower blocks and knock them down. That'd be nice.

We'd most likely have to move further out to Tolworth/Epsom/Chessington way.
