Chelsea's switch to new Stamford Bridge delayed until at least 2024 as redevelopment plans hit set-back

Chelsea will not move into the new Stamford Bridge until at least 2024 after club chiefs revealed the extent of further delays on their stadium redevelopment plans.

The Premier League champions had initially outlined a move-in date of the 2021-22 season for their new stadium, but will now not even depart their current home until 2020.

In May, Sportsmail revealed how Chelsea faced an extended four-year exile from Stamford Bridge while redevelopment works take place – most likely at Wembley, although they are still looking at as many as eight sites – and the club have now confirmed those plans.
