Hammersmith and Fulham council’s planning committee has approved Chelsea Football Club’s new stadium. Inspired by Gothic architecture and nearby Victorian-era design, the beauty which The Blues hope to one day call home is the brainchild of Herzog & de Meuron and is projected to finish in 2020 at the tune of £500 million GBP (~$610 million USD). Seating capacity for the new venue will max out at about 60,000 which is a 20,000 seat increase from the current Stamford Bridge Chelsea F.C. home. Although the committee has approved the design, work cannot begin until London Mayor Sadiq Khan approves it.
Check out the renders above and let us know what you think of the design.
