With over a century of sporting heritage to its name, Chelsea FC is one of the UK's most versatile and long-standing football grounds.
Stamford Bridge itself first opened as a sporting arena in 1877 and was used almost exclusively as a meeting place for the London Athletic Club. In 1904, the grounds were bought by the Mears brothers, who sought to re-design them with the aim of hosting a sport they had fallen in love with – football.
The stadium's original planned capacity was 100,000 – which would have made it Britain's second largest football ground, behind Crystal Palace. After being turned down by Fulham FC, in 1905 Stamford Bridge became the home to newly formed Chelsea FC, and has played host to the side ever since.
But aside from its football roots, Chelsea FC is also one of the UK's most-loved venues for conferences, dining, private events, weddings, drinks receptions and exhibitions.
As its name suggests, The Great Hall is one of London's largest, and most versatile function spaces. With a maximum capacity of 1,000, this grand venue is perfect for hosting large-scale gala dinners, conferences and receptions, but can also be used for more intimate events.
