Based on attendance figures, the club has the sixth-largest fanbase in England. In , Gus Mears acquired the Stamford Bridge athletics stadium with the aim of turning it into a football ground.
An offer to lease it to nearby Fulham was turned down, so Mears opted to found his own club to use the stadium.
Chelsea won promotion to the First Division in their second season, and yo-yoed between the First and Second Divisions in their early years.
They reached the FA Cup Final , where they lost to Sheffield United at Old Trafford, and finished third in the First Division in , the club's best league campaign to that point.
The club had the highest average attendance in English football in ten separate seasons  including —08 ,  —10 ,  —12 ,  —13 ,  —14  and — Former Arsenal and England centre-forward Ted Drake was appointed manager in and proceeded to modernise the club.
He removed the club's Chelsea pensioner crest, improved the youth set-up and training regime, rebuilt the side with shrewd signings from the lower divisions and amateur leagues, and led Chelsea to their first major trophy success — the League championship — in — Drake was dismissed in and replaced by player-coach Tommy Docherty.
Docherty built a new team around the group of talented young players emerging from the club's youth set-up and Chelsea challenged for honours throughout the s, enduring several near-misses.
They were on course for a treble of League, FA Cup and League Cup going into the final stages of the —65 season, winning the League Cup but faltering late on in the other two.
The late s through to the '80s was a turbulent period for Chelsea. An ambitious redevelopment of Stamford Bridge threatened the financial stability of the club,  star players were sold and the team were relegated.
Further problems were caused by a notorious hooligan element among the support, which was to plague the club throughout the decade.
Chelsea won the Second Division title in —84 and established themselves in the top division with two top-six finishes, before being relegated again in The club bounced back immediately by winning the Second Division championship in — After a long-running legal battle, Bates reunited the stadium freehold with the club in by doing a deal with the banks of the property developers, who had been bankrupted by a market crash.
The appointment of Ruud Gullit as player-manager in began an upturn in the team's fortunes. He added several top international players to the side and led the club to their first major honour since , the FA Cup.
They also mounted a strong title challenge in —99, finishing four points behind champions Manchester United, and made their first appearance in the UEFA Champions League.
Sarri then left the club to become manager of Juventus and was then replaced by former Chelsea player Frank Lampard. Chelsea have only had one home ground, Stamford Bridge, where they have played since the team's foundation.
It was officially opened on 28 April and for the first 28 years of its existence, it was used almost exclusively by the London Athletic Club as an arena for athletics meetings and not at all for football.
In the ground was acquired by businessman Gus Mears and his brother Joseph , who had also purchased nearby land formerly a large market garden with the aim of staging football matches on the now Starting with an open bowl-like design and one grandstand with seating, Stamford Bridge had an original capacity of around ,, making it the second biggest stadium in England after Crystal Palace.
As the roof resembled that of a corrugated iron shed, the stand eventually became known as the "Shed End", although it is unknown who first coined this name.
Starting in the s, it became known as the home of Chelsea's most loyal and vocal supporters. In the early s, the club's owners announced a modernisation of Stamford Bridge with plans for a state-of-the-art 50, all-seater stadium.
Following a long legal battle, it was not until the mids that Chelsea's future at the stadium was secured and renovation work resumed.
The East Stand was retained from the s development. In , the north stand was renamed the Matthew Harding stand, after the club director and benefactor who was killed in a helicopter crash earlier that year.
The intention was that these facilities would provide extra revenue to support the football side of the business, but they were less successful than hoped and before the Abramovich takeover in the debt taken on to finance them was a major burden on the club.
Soon after the takeover a decision was taken to drop the "Chelsea Village" brand and refocus on Chelsea as a football club.
However, the stadium is sometimes still referred to as part of "Chelsea Village" or "The Village". The Stamford Bridge freehold , the pitch , the turnstiles and Chelsea's naming rights are now owned by Chelsea Pitch Owners , a non-profit organisation in which fans are the shareholders.
The CPO was created to ensure the stadium could never again be sold to developers. As a condition for using the Chelsea FC name, the club has to play its first team matches at Stamford Bridge, which means that if the club moves to a new stadium, they may have to change their name.
Chelsea moved to Cobham in Their previous training ground in Harlington was taken over by QPR in Stamford Bridge hosted the FA Cup Final from to ,  has held ten FA Cup Semi-finals most recently in , ten FA Charity Shield matches the last in , and three England international matches, the last in ; it was also the venue for an unofficial Victory International in In October it hosted a rugby union match between the All Blacks and Middlesex,  and in hosted a baseball match between the touring New York Giants and the Chicago White Sox.
The current club ownership have stated that a larger stadium is necessary in order for Chelsea to stay competitive with rival clubs who have significantly larger stadia, such as Arsenal and Manchester United.
Chelsea have had four main crests , which all underwent minor variations. The first, adopted when the club was founded, was the image of a Chelsea pensioner , the army veterans who reside at the nearby Royal Hospital Chelsea.
This contributed to the club's original "pensioner" nickname, and remained for the next half-century, though it never appeared on the shirts.
When Ted Drake became Chelsea manager in , he began to modernise the club. Believing the Chelsea pensioner crest to be old-fashioned, he insisted that it be replaced.
In , the club crest was changed to an upright blue lion looking backwards and holding a staff. It was based on elements in the coat of arms of the Metropolitan Borough of Chelsea  with the "lion rampant regardant" taken from the arms of then club president Viscount Chelsea and the staff from the Abbots of Westminster , former Lords of the Manor of Chelsea.
It also featured three red roses, to represent England, and two footballs. In , with Ken Bates now owner of the club, Chelsea's crest was changed again as part of another attempt to modernise and because the old rampant lion badge could not be trademarked.
This lasted for the next 19 years, with some modifications such as the use of different colours, including red from to , and yellow from until , before the white returned.
The new crest was officially adopted for the start of the —06 season and marked a return to the older design, used from to , featuring a blue heraldic lion holding a staff.
Chelsea have always worn blue shirts, although they originally used the paler eton blue , which was taken from the racing colours of then club president, Earl Cadogan , and was worn with white shorts and dark blue or black socks.
Chelsea's away colours are usually all yellow or all white with blue trim. More recently, the club have had a number of black or dark blue away kits which alternate every year.
Chelsea are among the most widely supported football clubs in the world. There are also numerous official supporters clubs in the United Kingdom and all over the world.
The club's " football firm ", originally known as the Chelsea Shed Boys, and subsequently as the Chelsea Headhunters , were nationally notorious for football violence, alongside hooligan firms from other clubs such as West Ham United 's Inter City Firm and Millwall 's Bushwackers , before, during and after matches.
Since the s, there has been a marked decline in crowd trouble at matches, as a result of stricter policing, CCTV in grounds and the advent of all-seater stadia.
According to Home Office statistics, Chelsea fans were arrested for football-related offences during the —10 season, the third highest in the division, and 27 banning orders were issued, the fifth-highest in the division.
