That'd be awesome! Do you know if there are any renders of the potential rebuilding of Battersea?

Thread over in the proposed section:

But only renders of the exterior, no layouts of the stands.

I don't think those are plans for the stadium, just prior plans to redevelop the site.

Stamford Bridge

So I was wondering if there are any developments on a new stadium for Chelsea FC.

So basically the battersea bid failed but there has been no news since. They are in need for a new stadium. Chelsea are over capacity and could easily fill 60,000 stadium. The current stadium is very old and there needs to be a redevelopment. The current location has decent infrastructure around the stadium, with a train station very near by. The site itself isn't big enough, however it could be expanded. I can be expanded on 3 sides out of the 4. Partly because of the a very old listed building. There is a railway track on the east side, but it could easily be lowered or re directed for a couple million pounds.

Does anyone else's have any new news or stadium plans?

Yep, this plan failed:





The lastest update in January was also bad for them, as the Earls Court site has also been ruled out.

The battersea site would of been amazing. Quite close to where Stamford bridge is now and it would of been so unique compared to all the other stadiums.

Chelsea offered fresh hope in bid to build 60,000-seater stadium with invite to new Bridge

Chelsea dream of relocating to a new 60,000-seat stadium in Earl's Court is back on the cards as they are now expected to be invited to bid for a 17-acre plot in the area that is scheduled to be put up for sale at the end of this year.

The site, called Lillie Bridge, is owned by Transport for London (Tfl) and currently used as a railway depot. It was expected to be included in a 77-acre redevelopment of the wider area, called Earl's Court Masterplan, but TfL have now revealed to The Mail on Sunday that a sale to Masterplan developers Capco 'was not on the table' and that any sale would be on the open market.

TfL have embarked on a feasibility study of the site, which is likely to be finished at the end of the year, and insist they will 'consider every possibility'. A bidding war between Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Capco for Lillie Bridge is possible, in which case Abramovich's desire to move, understood to be strong, is the only factor that will matter.

It is unclear whether discussions between Abramovich and TfL have already taken place. The site would fetch an estimated £200million, but TfL are also considering whether to retain the freehold and sell a long-term lease. Should Chelsea move, they would recoup substantial sums from the redevelopment of Stamford Bridge as it sits in one of London's most exclusive areas.

Acquiring Lillie Bridge would enable the club to build a 60,000-seat stadium to boost their matchday revenues and compete with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal. Arsenal's Emirates Stadium also sits on a 17-acre site. Stamford Bridge has a capacity of 41,000 and the club have estimated it would cost £600m to construct a bigger stadium on the 13-acre site, which is hemmed in by railway lines and residential property.

A major obstacle for the Chelsea move is that Hammersmith and Fulham Council would be required to grant planning permission for a new stadium. A statement from the council earlier this year said Chelsea had 'no place' at Earl's Court.

But Chelsea believe they have the support of London mayor Boris Johnson, who could overrule the council and also sits on the TfL board of directors as chairman.
