Chelsea

Chelsea is an English professional football club from western London based in Fulham. FC and competes in the Premier League, of which they are reigning champions. The club plays most of its history in the top division of English football.

The main coach of Chelsea is Antonio Conte. Since July 2, 2003, the owner of the club is the Russian businessman Roman Abramovich.

History of Chelsea

History of the legendary football club started over a hundred years ago. The team was founded on 10 March 1905 at The Rising Sun pub (now The Butcher's Hook), opposite the present-day main entrance to the ground on Fulham Road, and were elected to the Football League shortly afterward.

The club quickly gained popularity among fans, but could not win a single trophy in the first 50 years of its existence.

In 1915 Chelsea finished second in the FA Cup but was defeated in the semifinals in 1911, 1920, 1932, 1950 and 1952. The club's greatest period of success has come during the last two decades; winning 18 major trophies since 1997.

Chelsea is successfully moving to new victories under the supervision of Conte. The club was able to repeat the record set in September 2009 again: they won 11 consecutive victories in the Premier League. In addition, Chelsea won the 13th consecutive victory in the championship of England in a home match on December 31, 2016, "Stoke City." Thus, the team has set one more club record.

Chelsea's regular kit colours are royal blue shirts and shorts with white socks. Chelsea football players always wore blue T-shirts. Originally, the T-shirts were a lighter shade than they have now. Also, they wore white shorts and dark blue gaiters.

Home stadium

Chelsea has only one home stadium, Stamford Bridge, where they have played since the team's foundation.

The official opening of the Stamford Bridge Stadium was held on April 28, 1877.

In our time, the capacity of the stadium is 41 841 people. The stadium changed its oval shape to the form of a rectangle with stands approaching the field as close as possible. Over the past ten years, almost all parts of the stadium have undergone some changes.

Stamford Bridge is the largest football stadium in London after the newly constructed Emirates and Wembley. Stamford Bridge is one of the best stadiums in Britain and Europe.

Results

Chelsea is one of the founding clubs of the English Premier League in 1992. The club became the champion of England six times, and also they won the Cup of the Football Association seven times and five times League Cups, four FA Community Shields, one UEFA Champions League, two UEFA Cup Winners' Cups, one UEFA Europa League and one UEFA Super Cup.

Chelsea is the only London club to win the UEFA Champions League, and one of four clubs, and the only British club, to have won all three main UEFA club competitions.

Chelsea is ranked 7th in the list of clubs with the highest incomes. May 7, 2015, Forbes magazine estimated the club at $ 1.37 billion (£ 903 million).
