Chelsea Football Club was founded in 1905 by Gus Mears, an English businessman who purchased the Stamford Bridge athletics stadium to convert it into a football ground. The club has since grown to become one of the most successful football clubs in England, winning numerous domestic and international trophies.
As reported by Goal.com, Chelsea's success has largely come in the 21st century, coinciding with a change in ownership when Roman Abramovich took over as owner. Since then, the club has won six Premier League titles, eight FA Cups, and a host of other domestic and international trophies. In the last two decades, Chelsea has established itself as a dominant force in both British and European football.
Despite their recent success, Chelsea's last Premier League title came in the 2016-17 season under the leadership of Antonio Conte. The club has continued to compete at the highest level both domestically and internationally, with their most recent success being a UEFA Champions League triumph in the 2020-21 season.
In total, Chelsea has won 34 major trophies, including two European Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners' Cups, and two UEFA Super Cups. The club's success has made them one of the most successful English clubs in Europe and a major contender in the Premier League each season.
