Chelsea have officially bid for the Battersea Power Station Site that has been speculated in recent times. A new 60,000 seater venue is planned for the club where one stand will hold a reported 15,000 people, which will be the largest in football.
Whilst Chelsea risk the wrath of their loyal supporters, it seems they are ignoring these calls and pushing on with their proposals to move away from Stamford Bridge.
The huge 39 acre Battersea site wouldn't be short of space to potential suitors, so it will be particularly interesting to see if Chelsea's bid proves successful.
The official Chelsea F.C website read: "Battersea Power Station is one of London's most famous buildings and has the potential to become one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world.
"Our joint bid was submitted in accordance with the sales process established by the Joint Administrators for the site. The process could run for a number of months.
Before adding: "We must also stress that making an offer for the Battersea Power Station site does not mean the club has made a definitive decision to leave Stamford Bridge.
Following on from this news, do you think Chelsea’s decision to bid for the Battersea site was a right one? Will they be successful? What are the main reasons for leaving Stamford Bridge, and are they valid? Should the club properly consult the club’s fans before making key decisions like this in the future? How much power does the community hold in terms of plans for a new stadium?
