Having officially opened in 1887, Stamford Bridge is the oldest stadium in the Premier League and it has undergone a huge transformation since its humble beginnings as the home of London Athletic Club in the 19th Century.

The venue was originally offered to Fulham FC but after they turned it down, Chelsea moved into the stadium a few months after forming in March 1905.

Stamford Bridge has four, state-of-the-art, all-seater sections that are close to the pitch and can create an electric atmosphere.
