Chelsea Football Club have recently established themselves as one of the top clubs
in England and Europe. Founded in 1905, Chelsea had their first major success in
1955, winning the League Championship (now the Premier League). They have won various
competitions during the 1960’s and 70’s but their most successful period started
in the mid 1990’s and particularly from 2003, when Chelsea have been owned by Russian
billionaire, Roman Abramovich.
Chelsea’s home ground is Stamford Bridge, based in the Fulham area of London. Chelsea’s
main honours include 4 League titles, 7 FA Cups, 2 UEFA Cup Winners Cups and 1 UEFA
They finally achieved Roman Abramovich’s dream of winning the UEFA Champions League
last season (2011-12) with a victory on penalties against Bayern Munich. Their caretaker
manager at the time was ex-player, Roberto Di Matteo, who was rewarded by being appointed
as their full time manager. Chelsea will now be looking to build on last season’s
success and hoping Roberto Di Matteo can inspire them to the Premier League title.
