Top 5: Terry goals
As John Terry becomes the highest all time scorer as a defender in the Premier League, we look back at his top 5 goals
There have been upsets and difficult challenges along the way as well that only add to the intrigue, and by visiting The Story of Chelsea below, each twist and turn is recalled chapter by chapter.
The rise of Chelsea Women to become one of the powers of the game is told in its own section and the Stamford Bridge story is in Stadium History. Our major silverware is collected together in the Trophy Cabinet and Classic Kits down the years are recalled in their own gallery. Head down to the bottom of the page for plenty more with a historical theme.
Across nine chapters, the story of the Blues (or the Pensioners as the team was originally nicknamed) is revealed in words, images and videos - from the dreams of the founders realised in the best stadium in the land, to drawing big crowds with big stars, to modernising the club and winning trophies before a financial collapse and memorable recovery, and then the upward path to the current era.
A 21st Century success story, Chelsea Women are big news on the domestic and world stages, but a line can be traced back to 100 years earlier with Stamford Bridge hosting female footballers before a nationwide ban. When that was lifted, a Chelsea team were quick out the blocks but it took a relaunch and then assimilation into the main club structure before really starting to move upwards. Read about it all here.
The only stadium Chelsea Football Club's men's team have ever called home - the grass, terraces and stands of this corner of London SW6 have a colourful past in their own right, including development projects both realised and abandoned, and a long battle just remain at Stamford Bridge when property developers had other plans.
When it comes to major domestic and European honours, our men's team have won it all, and our Women's and Academy sides have been lifting cups regularly in recent times too. View the collection here.
