Built in 1876 as an athletics stadium, Chelsea were founded in 1905 to give the ground a tenant when it was converted to a football stadium. In the 1990s the Bridge underwent a complete makeover, being converted from a vast concrete bowl with terracing, to the compact 41,798-capacity all-seater it is today. Situated slap bang in the middle of a prized area of west London, Stamford Bridge is hemmed in by two train lines and a main road, but plans are afoot to convert it into an ultra-modern, 60,000-capacity arena.
