The Blues are set to pounce on the 39-acre site in Wandsworth to construct their new stadium.
Stamford Bridge, currently the home ground of Chelsea located in London can accommodate 41,837 fans. However, the newly proposed stadium is set to have capacity way in excess of that. The administrators of the site have selected SP Setia and Sime Darby’s joint bid but the European champions are still hopeful that their proposal will be considered.
The club said in a statement today: ‘We firmly believe our proposals could address the unique challenges presented by the site.
‘The design would integrate the stadium with the power station in a sensitive, unique and powerful way, with all significant historical aspects of the power station to be retained.
‘In creating an iconic world-class stadium we would preserve the four chimneys and wash towers along with the historically significant west turbine hall and control room, all to be restored and retained in their original locations.’
The London club has released computer generated architectural plans of the new stadium and by the looks of it, the new stadium could rival any other stadium in England.
