Chelsea has been long planning to upgrade Stamford Bridge but no advancements towards it have been made yet.
“The Club confirmed there are no developments regarding the new stadium so the project remains on hold,” as quoted by Chelsea Supporters Group.
Chelsea had secured all permissions and plans to upgrade the stadium way back in 2017 itself. After an extensive stretch of arranging and investigation not long ago, Chelsea experienced two open meetings to conclude plans for the teardown and revamp of Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea posted an image of Stamford Bridge on Instagram, which got fans talking about the stadium upgrade.
Last endorsement from the neighborhood board showed up before the expected time 2017, with the London Mayor’s office taking action accordingly on March 6, 2017. Each phase of the construction was given a deadline and entire plan had been drawn up.
However, the agreement was made for 3 years and Chelsea hasn’t really done anything with the stadium since then. There are around three months left before the deal expires in March 21, 2020.
Last year, rumours started coming that Chelsea was going to start work on the new stadium – however, the rumours soon fizzled out.
What do you think is going to happen this year – does a new decade mean new stadium plans? Whatever it may be, we shall surely miss Stamford Bridge!
