Blues to buy back stadium shares

Mon, 03 Oct 20:36:46 2011

Chelsea have moved a step closer towards building a new stadium after making an offer to buy back the parts of Stamford Bridge sold to supporters in the 1990s.

Blues chairman Bruce Buck and chief executive Ron Gourlay have said that the club had still to decide whether to move to a new home but insisted they would not be able to do so unless they regained ownership of the pitch and stands at Stamford Bridge.

Buck and Gourlay appealed to the 12,000 CPO shareholders - most of whom are fans - to sell their 15,000 shares to the club for the price they paid for them in return for various incentives at any new stadium.

Chelsea planning for the future and possible move away from Stamford Bridge

By Jason Burt
8:00PM BST 03 Oct 2011

Although the club insist that there is nothing “active” in terms of leaving the Bridge, chairman Bruce Buck said on Monday: “We have to be prepared for a move if something right comes along for Chelsea.”

Three areas have been identified as possible sites — Earls Court, White City and, probably the most likely candidate, Nine Elms on the banks of the river Thames — although there are no discussions at present.

A fourth site, at Imperial Wharf, has already been dismissed as too small — Chelsea would need around 20 acres of land for a 60,000-capacity stadium — while developers have mentioned areas to the north at Wormwood Scrubs and Old Oak Common.

If Chelsea did move they would like then to redevelop the Stamford Bridge site for a mix of residential and commercial use to help pay for the switch, with the rest of the costs being met by bank finance and probably a contribution from owner Roman Abramovich.

I can certainly see them building a new stadium in the future, especially as Stamford Bridge would be a total nightmare to try and redevelop.

Stamford Bridge

Hello does anyone by any chance have plans - sections and elevations - of the existing four stands at Stamford Bridge? Thank you!

Ouch! Those numbers certainly put things into perspective:

Looks more likely than ever now that building a new stadium is the way forward for Chelsea.

Then again, shouldn't we keep in minds that Chelsea presented what they wanted to present? As much as I accept most arguments raised, we should not forget that we aren't listening to an objective entity, but to a side interested in moving out and focused on persuading skeptics to their point of view. They have clear benefits from doing so. Which raises the question if the data i the link above is the most credible one.

It's a fair point. Sounds like the CPO will scrutinise these latest figures in more detail, which is obviously their right to do so. If this latest news from the club doesn't add up to, then the relationship between the club and its supporters is going to hit an all-time low.

im not a chelsea supporter but i would be asking why its wrong to spend 600 millions on rebuilding stamford bridge when they have spent countless millions hiring and firing 8 managers in 9 years, speant 50 million on Fernando Torres 30 million on schevchenko

they could afford to rebuild stamford bridge but they dont want to because they want to make a killing on selling prime west london real estate (stamford bridge) build a new stadium and try and make it big on the corporate seating, whether that is just a fact of football now a day is a point for debate i geuss.

whether Chelsea actually need much of an expansion is also up for debate

When you have a Billionaire to back you, you have the ability to hire and fire managers almost at will which is what Roman has done over the last several years. Chelsea doesn't have the best luck when it comes to signing big stars and having them perform well. Juan Mata has been their best signing in a long time.

Stamford Bridge appears to be in pretty good shape and it is a good sized stadium. I think Chelsea could handle playing in a 49-55,000 seat ground and be able to either sell it out, or come very close for their home matches.

Let's hope this is not the case, but figures shown by the club are barely believable when you only look at them. Constraints of the plot aren't questionable, though.

I'd agree on this one. Abramovich just spent app. €7mln for seeing 3 group games of the Euro 2012 in Poland. Taking into account that Chelsea is a powerhouse of global football, the 600mln investment doesn't really seem out of reach. Not saying it's the most reasonable option as haven't got the insight to do so, but we haven't been given any figures on a potential new stadium in a different location.

think 50-55 is around Chelsea maximum, to a large degree chelsea problem is when they got brought out by abromivich the acquired a lot of fans, most of the kids and tbh if Chelsea start chronically under performing even worse then this season what is to stop them say supporting Manchester City, Utd etc

tbh Chelsea have always seemed to be a big/biggish club but whether there fanbase is large enough to say go through 20 years of being unseccesful and still filling out every week with a huge ST waiting list like my club is another matter.

and yes until another site is found in west london, a design shown to every one then it is actually debatable if it is cheaper building new or staying put

Increase the capacity by doing what some people did in the old days at The Bridge.

Bloody hell, they are keen to watch the game. Is that the Dynamo Moscow game in 1945?
