No More Stamford Bridge? Chelsea Set to Move to Wembley Stadium (See Why)


Chelsea are willing to pay up to £11m annually, to use Wembley Stadium for three seasons, if they go ahead with the planned Stamford Bridge expansion.

According to The Times, the Premier League champions are likely to need a temporary home ground from the 2017/2018 season.

Another London team, Tottenham Hotspur, will also be looking for a new home around that period while their new stadium is built. But they have offered about £8m a year to use Wembley.

;The Wembley board has not decided whether to rent the national stadium to a club, especially as it also generates income from other events like NFL games and music concerts.

This might force Chelsea to consider Twickenham, the national rugby union stadium.
