Chelsea Football Club is a professional English football club based in London, England. Commonly known as Chelsea, the club currently competes in the Premier League, which is the top division in the English football pyramid. They are one of the most successful clubs in English football over recent years.
Chelsea currently play their home matches at Stamford Bridge, which has been their home since the club was founded in 1905. It currently has a maximum capacity of 40,341, although the club have put forward multiple proposals on redeveloping the ground to extend the capacity.
As previously mentioned, Chelsea have risen to become one of the most successful teams in English football this century. Prior to 2004, Chelsea had won the English first division just once in their history, but have since gone on to win the title a further five times, including in back-to-back years in 2004/05 and 2005/06. The FA Cup is a tournament Chelsea have enjoyed plenty of success in too, having won the competition eight times in their history, as well as adding five League Cups to the collection. In addition, Chelsea have won the Second Division twice, as well as four Community Shield titles.
As well as their domestic success, Chelsea have won plenty of silverware in European competition, too. The pinnacle of their European success has come in the UEFA Champions League, which they have won twice in their history, first doing so by beating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in 2012. Their second Champions League title came nine years later when they defeated Manchester City in the final. Chelsea’s European haul is rounded off with two Europa Leagues, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and two UEFA Super Cups, as well as one FIFA Club World Cup.
For most of their history, Chelsea have been a top flight club in England, but have also spent a number of seasons in the second tier too. Their last spell in the second division came in the 1988/89 season, making them one of a select number of clubs to have never been relegated during the Premier League era. With just one league title to their name, won in the 1955/56 season, Chelsea were known more as a cup team than one that would win league titles.
However, Chelsea’s fortunes truly turned for the better in 2003 when Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich completed a takeover of the club. Coming with a seemingly bottomless pit of cash, Chelsea were able to invest millions into their team, turning into a true contender on all fronts overnight. That era shaped the future of the riches of modern football in England.
The appointment of Mourinho really turned Chelsea into a powerhouse as the Portuguese led the club to the Premier League title in 2004/05 and 2005/06 in dominant fashion. However, Abramovich’s trigger-happy nature came to light at the end of Mourinho’s time and continued throughout the rest of his reign. The pinnacle of the Abramovich era came in 2012 when the club finally won the Champions League for the first time after nearly a decade of chasing Europe’s biggest prize. However, he was forced to sell to American businessman Todd Boehly in the summer of 2022.
