Chelsea’s rise to prominence
It may seem that Chelsea FC has been dominant forever but their history began in 1904.
Gus Mears acquired the Stamford Bridge Athletics Stadium and the following year the Chelsea FC team started to compete.
The 10th March 1905 was a momentous day in Chelsea’s history. At the Rising Sun Pub, now called the Butcher’s Hook, opposite the Fulham Road gates, this iconic club’s first team was created. A short time later they were accepted in to the Football League.
There was already a Fulham team so although the stadium is in Fulham they opted for Chelsea FC in preference to alternatives including Kensington FC and London FC.
Stalwarts of the first and second divisions, they were the runners up in the FA Cup Final in 1915.
In the 1950’s, the former Arsenal and England player, Ted Drake, became Chelsea’s manager and modernised its practices and made some big-name signings. He led the team to their first League Championship victory in the 1954-55 season.
