Council statement on Stamford Bridge

Friday May 4, 2012

Cllr Nick Botterill, H&F Council's deputy leader, says: “Stamford Bridge is Chelsea’s historic home and it remains the council’s view that it should be their future home.

"We want the Blues to stay at Stamford Bridge and, if it can be done sensibly without negatively affecting local people, increase the ground's capacity so they can retain their position as one of Europe’s top clubs.

"We are proud to be the only borough in the country with three Premier League clubs and we do not want our local businesses and residents to lose out on the economic and social benefits that this brings. CFC is a thriving business which contributes significant benefits to the area and we will continue to work closely with the club to explore all possible avenues for keeping them here at their original home."
