Chelsea are considering a move from Stamford Bridge to Earls Court as they put together plans to create an elite new stadium under Todd Boehly

Chelsea are to look again at a possible move from Stamford Bridge to Earls Court.

The club have put together a team to oversee plans to create an elite new stadium — and a 60,000-seat ground on a 40-acre site in Earls Court is among the options that will be considered.

Chelsea first considered moving there in 2013 under former owner Roman Abramovich, but Hammersmith and Fulham Council knocked back the idea.

The club are now considering a range of long-term options, including identifying possible new sites, rebuilding Stamford Bridge stand-by-stand and demolishing and starting again.

Chelsea would require permission from Chelsea Pitch Owners (CPO) to leave Stamford Bridge.

The shareholder group owns the freehold with a 180-year lease. Without their permission the club would be forced to give up the Chelsea FC name.

Chelsea also have the possibility of snapping up a 1.2 acre site next to Stamford Bridge for £50million.
