Chelsea co-owner and chairman Todd Boehly is set to invest in an upgrade to Stamford Bridge mainly focused on improving the overall look of the stadium.

According to The Telegraph, the improvements will include the renovation of the West Stand as well as new murals around the stadium.  

The Boehly-Clearlake consortium, who finalised their takeover of Chelsea in May, are eager to create a greater sense of belonging for the club’s supporters and also want to spell out the club’s identity around the ground.

Boehly has entrusted the project to executive Janet Marie Smith, who has overseen the renovation of several major US sports venues, including Dodger Stadium, the home of baseball’s LA Dodgers, who are part owned by Boehly. 

There are plans in place for changes to Fulham Broadway, which is the only access point to the ground. 

Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich previously gained planning permissions for a new 60,000-capacity stadium on the site of Stamford Bridge, but the project, which could have cost more than £2 billion, didn’t materialise. 

The plans put in place by Boehly do not intend to increase the stadium’s current capacity of 40,341.
