Blues Battersea Bid
Published: May 5, 2012
Blues Battersea Bid, Chelsea have confirmed they had submitted a bid to acquire the Battersea Power Station site in order to build a new 60,000-seater stadium.The Blues announced plans to transform the Grade II* listed building in Wandsworth into “one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world”.
The ground, which would take between three and four years to construct, would include the power station’s four chimneys and other aspects of the existing structure as part of the design.
Chelsea are not the only bidders for the site, which was valued at £500million in October and was put up for sale two months later amid an administration saga.
The Blues maintain they have yet to decide whether to relocate but they have also insisted it is not economically viable to redevelop Stamford Bridge.
Their hopes of moving rest on convincing fan-led group Chelsea Pitch Owners to sell them the freehold of their current home, something they failed to do at an extraordinary general meeting in October.
Chelsea said in a statement: “Battersea Power Station is one of London’s most famous buildings and has the potential to become one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world.
“Our joint bid was submitted in accordance with the sales process established by the joint administrators for the site. The process could run for a number of months. (Football365)
