Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium development plan is set for approval today.

The planning application for the proposed £600 million redevelopment of the stadium will be tabled before Hammersmith and Fulham Council on Wednesday.

If approved, Chelsea will move into a temporary place for the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Construction of the new 60,000-seater edifice will take three years. The Blues however hope to open the stadium in 2020 .
