Stamford Bridge (often referred as The Bridge) is the home ground of Chelsea F.C., the famous football club of British Premier League. Being located in Walham Green in Fulham, London, it is one of the major football stadiums used for premier league matches. It was formerly used by the London Athletic Club since its opening in 1877, but it went to the ownership of Chelsea Football Club when Gus Mears, the founder of Chelsea originated the club in 1905 and started playing there. Many important matches such as the International matches of England, FA Cup semi-finals, FA Cup finals and Charity Shield games have been conducted on the ground. Many other sports like Cricket, Rugby Union, Speedway, Greyhound Racing, Baseball and American Football have also been played here. As it is an old vintage stadium, it has gone through numerous renovations over the decades that have transformed the venue into an all-seater modern stadium.
