Chelsea was founded on 10 March 1905 and since then Stamford Bridge has been the home of this London club. The stadium seats 41 631 spectators and is located in the Fulham district. The capacity of the stadium will increase in the coming years to about 55 000 places.
Since Russian Roman Abramovich took the club in 2003 for 86 million euros from Ken Bates, the number of successes of the club has increased significantly. In 2012 Chelsea won the Champions League and a year later the Europa League. In a distant past, the European Cup II was already seized twice and the Blues also won quite a number of prizes nationally. They were six times national champion, won the FA Cup eight times, five times the League Cup and four times the Community Shield.
Last season was a terrible season for Chelsea. Due to the war in Ukraine, Abramovich left the club the season before, but things continued to go downhill under the new ownership. Thomas Tuchel was sacked early in the season, but things hardly improved under his successor Graham Potter. He also did not make it to the end of the season. Club icon Frank Lampard was appointed for the last few games. 'The Blues' finished in a very disappointing twelfth place in the Premium League and will therefore not be active in Europe next season.
Nevertheless, the team does have many star players such as Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling. Moisés Caicedo was recently acquired for more than 130 million euros.
