History

New history section unveiled on chelseafc.com

Chelsea Football Club continues to make history. In front of a watching world, at the end of the season completed in May, the Blues joined an elite band of clubs to have lifted the Champions League on more than one occasion and we remain the only club from London to win the competition.

Chelsea are the first team to win all three main European club competitions twice and last season, we became only the third club to reach 2,000 Premier League points. By reaching the FA Cup final and Champions League final, we made it to a major final for the fifth season in a row. We had not previously had such a run.

As we continue to mark the special 2020/21 campaign, today on the official website we launch a new section celebrating Chelsea’s history.

With over a century of football played at a prime west London location so fundamental to the birth of Chelsea Football Club in 1905, there is a great story to tell, full of ambition, star players, dramatic quests for trophy success and fashionable style, and at times even a swagger too, and we tell that tale.

There have been upsets and difficult challenges along the way too that only add to the intrigue, and in our new Story of Chelsea section, each twist and turn is recalled chapter by chapter with plenty of video action to enjoy. 

The rise of Chelsea Women to become one of the powers of the game is told on its own page and there is stadium history too. Our major silverware is collected together in the Trophy Cabinet and classic kits down the years are recalled in their own gallery.
