Chelsea shelves £1bn Stamford Bridge stadium

Proposed new Chelsea FC stadium by Herzog de Meuron - approved January 2017

Chelsea has put its estimated £1bn WSP-engineered stadium plans on ice due to an “unfavourable investment climate”.

The club’s proposed 60,000 seater stadium would have increased capacity by a third, and would have opened in 2021/22.

A spokesperson for Chelsea Football Club said: “Chelsea Football Club announces today that it has put its new stadium project on hold. No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur.

“The club does not have a time frame set for reconsideration of its decision. The decision was made due to the current unfavourable investment climate.”

WSP has been contacted for comment.
