The Premier League team Chelsea F.C. Co-Owner and Chairman Todd Boehly is set to invest in an upgrade to the top-flight’s residence – Stamford Bridge in London (UK) – that is mainly focused on improving the overall look of the stadium.

‘NewsTimesuk.com’ stated that the improvements will include renovations to the West Stand as well as new murals around the stadium.

The Chelsea Football Club is an English professional football club based in Fulham, West London, UK. Founded in 1905, they play their home games at Stamford Bridge. The club competes in the Premier League, the top division of English football. They won their first major honor, the League championship, in 1955.

The Stamford Bridge is a football stadium in Fulham, adjacent to the borough of Chelsea in West London. It is the home of Premier League club Chelsea F.C. With a capacity of 40,341, it is the ninth largest venue of the 2022-2023 Premier League seasons.

‘NewsTimesuk.com’ further stated that the Boehly-Clearlake consortium, who finalized their takeover of Chelsea in May, are keen to create a greater sense of belonging for the club’s supporters and spell out the club’s identity around the pitch.

Chelsea’s new owners are investing in an upgrade to Stamford Bridge that will improve the overall look of the stadium.

There are also plans for a larger club crest in the West Stand, where the club’s reception is located, which will also feature illuminated letters spelling out Chelsea F.C.

The area behind the shed end will feature a new mural that will include lyrics from fans.

Boehly assigned the project to executive Janet Marie Smith, who has overseen the renovation of several major US sports venues, including the 56,000-capacity Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California (US), home of baseball’s LA Dodgers, which Boehly owns.

Changes are planned to Fulham Broadway, which is the only access point to the ground.

Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich previously received planning permission for a new 60,000-capacity stadium on the Stamford Bridge site, but the project, which could cost more than £2bn, has not materialized.

Boehly’s plan does not intend to increase the stadium’s current capacity of 40,341.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly wants to create a greater sense of belonging for supporters.

The West Stand will feature a ‘Chelsea Football Club’ mural, which already exists in the Shed End.

In addition, there will be banners displaying the trophies the club has won throughout its history and a new LED screen and frontage for the club’s megastore.

The East Stand will feature a new ‘Chelsea Football Club’ mural and a traditional Chelsea crest will also be installed.
