Chelsea football club is the team founded by the owners of Stanford Bridge to have a field where to play. Is for that reason that Chelsea is related to this pitch.

The situation right now is different, the new rich man in the city is Roman Abramovic, very different from the humble beginning of the club. The owners of Stanford Bridge don't want to sell the stadium. Chelsea Pitch Owners is an organization of Chelsea supporters that was created to adquire the pitch and the naming rights of the club, during the 90's decade. 

Now the club wants to expand Stanford Bridge, wants to go from 40.000 spectators to 60.000. Beyond the logistical problems that will the reform (the pitch occupies 12 hectares very well used, and architects must devise a good plan to grow tiers) will be completly incompatible with Chelsea's games. In fact, the club is already looking for a new temporary stadium, and all the indications are that will end up being the new Wembley.
