Chelsea's plans to build a 60,000-seater stadium in London have been revived, according to the New Civil Engineer - a civil engineering magazine.

Furthermore, the project has been revived with the intention of saving up to £500million - half the initial projected cost.

The project was originally sidelined after costs approached the £1billion mark, though it now looks like the club are open to the idea of building again with the belief they can cut costs dramatically by moving to a new location.

It is understood the club would prefer to stay in their current location, though costs would have to reduce significantly for such a development to occur.

The uncertainty surrounding Roman Abrahimovich, the club's owner, in London after he had his visa renewal denied in 2018 has had an impact in the development process.

That being said, the current capacity of Stamford Bridge - at just over 41,000 - is considered well below the required capacity for a club of Chelsea's stature.


At present, Chelsea have the smallest stadium of all clubs in the Premier League's big-six, with Stamford Bridge boasting a capacity of approximately 13,000 less than Anfield - though Liverpool currently have plans to continue increasing their stadium capacity.
