Our New Stadium

The increased capacity re the corporate side would easily subidise the cheaper seats to ensure capacity crowds

 

It could but it wouldn't.

 

As I said, anyone expecting thousands of cheap subsidised tickets in a new stadium is going to be disappointed. They'll continue to charge as much as they can get away with and still have a reasonably full stadium.

And your happy with this?. A football club where it's core support are tourists. And you wonder why other fans take the piss out of us and call us plastic. I just couldn't step foot in a place like that it's almost anti-football fan. It's a marketing man's wet dream and a football fan's nightmare

Imagine how embarassing it would be to have 15,000 empty seats.

We also got to realise that we need new fans coming through. Fans from 60s 70s ( myself) 80s and 90s aren't going to fill stamford bridge. We may think we're more passionate or vocal, but we want new blood coming through and I know people who use the family section to get their kids coming to the games to keep the tradition going. They can't be all labelled "plastic". My first game as 9 year old was Chelsea vs Liverpool 1978 over 45,000 then went for the rest of that season with nowhere near that figure, so we had plastic fans back then.

Your right Richard. Generation's of fans have been past by chelsea for year's because of ticket prices. I fear for our vocal furture at chelsea I really do.

If we had the right stadium with the right pricing we'd fill a 70k stadium

You've got a real hard on for corporate mate do you watch your football from an executive box?. So it's foie gras and a cheeky red for them and wagon wheels and bovril for the oiks.

 I think Roman would do it right too, his behaviour since he took over the club, tells you it would be more like the way City are doing it than Arsenal re ticket prices at a new bigger/stadium

 

Given his taste for the dramatic/oligarch mentality Id say any new stadium he did instruct, would have to be better than anyone else's!

The secretary of state has passed the compulsory purchase applications which will allow Spurs to complete the purchase of all the necessary buildings and land to enable them to start work on their new 56,000 capacity stadium

Roman loves Chelsea???????

He'd have loved Spuds if he'd been successful in buying them!

He cares for the club, but it's not love, not like a fan whose grown up supporting them from a young age.[/quot

Absolutely spot on!

Love is something that grows, its not instant. I love my wife but had I met someone else before who knows I may have loved them to.

"Peanuts! Peanuts! Roasted Peanuts!" 20p for a paper bag. They were the days!

 

I went to university in Glasgow 25 years ago, used to go to plenty games across the city as a neutral, back in those days there was an alcohol ban in the stadiums, so people used to inject oranges with vodka and take them in.

 

As everyone piled out after games, all you could see was the terraces covered in orange skins.

Quick question. I've been to the Bridge like 6 times and was on wikipedia today ans saw they had 85k for a match in the 30's . I know the stadium was remodeled a few years ago but I can't see how they could have crammed that many people into a stadium with that small of a footprint

On a slightly related note, Chelsea are credited in many quarters for hosting the largest attendance in English football history, with their games vs Dynamo Moscow in 1945 - where a reported 100,000 to 120,000 packed into an already at capacity Stamford Bridge.

I don't know about the geology bellow SB, but has there been any discussion on engineering an underground parking/shops/space/etc? I do really like the idea of the steep stands to be "on top" of the game. Could they also lower the level of the pitch as well to add to that affect? Just throwing these ideas out there, not really sure how feasible it would be. Also possibly looking into building parking ramps like the ones found in Chicago, USA that when empty appear as giant sculptures...

Think someone mentioned the water table below Stamford Bridge had to be taken into consideration.

The technology is out there to create something special. It seems the club have spent fortunes on surveys and specialist advice.

I really hope there is a way to redevelop and it doesn't come down to politics.

I love Stamford Bridge. I cant imagine Chelsea having a home match in another stadium. I hope we expand the capacity instead of moving. 

 

We likely will have to play somewhere else while expanding, so we will probably have home matches somewhere else for awhile.
