Chelsea’s new stadium
Wednesday was an important day for Chelsea Football Club.
In a move preparing the Blues for the future, Chelsea have been given the go-ahead to rebuild Stamford Bridge in plans that would expand the ground’s capacity to 60,000 seats.
Chelsea’s ground currently has a 41,600 capacity.
The cost of the rebuild is set to be around £500 million.
During the rebuild, Chelsea may have to find a new home on a temporary basis. The two likeliest options for Chelsea could be moves to Wembley Stadium or alternatively to Twickenham.
People are laughing
But what of the design for Chelsea’s new Stamford Bridge stadium.
Some people have made jokes about the design, which some have compared to a food dicer and others to a slinky.
