Chelsea confirm permission to obtain new stadium expires in a few days

Chelsea have confirmed the permission given to them to obtain a new stadium expires on 31st March. 

A statement from the club revealed that the permission is set to expire soon, but they remain committed to obtaining a new ground.

"Chelsea Football Club acknowledges that the planning permission we obtained for a new stadium expires on 31st March 2020," read part of the statement. 

The club further thanked the stakeholders for their cooperation, and promised to pick up the issue once 'economic conditions improve'.

"We are grateful to all our fans and stakeholders, especially Hammersmith & Fulham Council, for their patience and understanding in the matter. We will continue to consider our options for a new stadium, should economic conditions improve," 

The permission to expand the ground was given in January 2017, but they have not been able to push through with recommendations. 

Chelsea were looking at increasing the Stamford Bridge capacity to 60,000, right from the current 41,000.
