Chelsea may get council ground help

Published Add your comment

Chelsea could get help from Hammersmith and Fulham Council to upgrade Stamford Bridge after their latest attempt to find a site for a new stadium failed.

The European Champions submitted a bid to move into Battersea Power Station last month but it emerged this week that a joint proposal from two Malaysian companies was selected as the preferred bid. The Blues are seeking a new home due to the problems of improving their 42,000-seater ground, but finding a site in the local area has been just as tough.

The new leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Cllr Nicholas Botterill, has insisted he wants to see Chelsea remain at Stamford Bridge and has been in touch with the club in an attempt to open the discussions. He said: "It now looks highly unlikely that CFC will be moving away from their historic home."
