Happy Birthday -Chelsea FC

10th march 1905

(A new club(Chelsea) was founded)

On 10 March 1905, Chelsea FC were founded at the Rising Sun pub in Fulham. They’ve since become one of England’s most successful clubs.

The club’s story starts with Gus Mears. In 1904, he purchased the Stamford Bridge ground in Fulham which was, to that point, the home of the London Athletics Club. Mears planned to redevelop the ground into a state-of-the art football facility, with the intent of hosting the area’s existing local team, Fulham FC. But Fulham were not interested, so Mears decided to start his own club instead. Meeting at the pub across from the grounds entrance, he chose the name

Chelsea after the neighboring borough.

The new club joined the Football League’s Second Division that first year, then went on to win their first promotion two years later. They took their first major honor in 1955, winning the league. They added several other trophies through the latter part of the 20th century,including three FA Cups (1970, 1997, 2000), two League Cups (1965, 1998) and two Cup Winners’ Cups (1971, 1998).
