According to English media, Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich is all set to unveil the blueprint of Stamford Bridge renovation plan on 30th June. He has planned to conduct a three-day public consultation at Stamford Bridge. The Russian owner has plans of refurbishing the Blues’ home stadium and increase the capacity to 60,000 seats.

As per the initial thinking, the design of the new four new stands will not be similar to that of the modern day football stadiums. Rather inspiration will be taken from the buttresses, pillars and gothic architecture of Westminster Abbey.

Abramovich is planning to acquire the services of top quality professionals for the work. The team might consist of a master plan architect (Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands), stadium architect (Herzog & De Meuron), strategic planners (Aecom), railways and transportation (WSP) and structural engineers (Schlaich Bergermann & Partner) to work on the plan.

Chelsea in all probability will choose between Wembley or Twickenham as their temporary home ground. The work is expected to be done withing three years.

The majority of the seating capacity in the newly renovated stadium will be in the South Stand. 

The Chelsea boss is planning to eventually hand over a newly looked improved stadium fit for a European football superpower to his eldest son Arkadiy who is 21-year-old. This is one fo the reasons Abramovich is spending nearly a billion pound to renovate the existing Chelsea home ground. 

He has a dream of making this stadium one of the best in Europe. He had said that he wants the stadium to be a cathedral of football, paying homage to the club’s history at their one and only venue.
