Chelsea hold ground share talks with West Ham
Chelsea have held renewed talks with West Ham over a potential ground share at the London Stadium during the redevelopment of Stamford Bridge. The club's preference is still to play games at Wembley during the three years the redevelopment will take, but it is making contingency plans in case it cannot reach agreement with the FA.
The London Stadium has emerged as the only credible alternative. A possible move to Twickenham has been ruled out because of opposition from the Rugby Football Union and local residents.
The decision on whether to let Chelsea use the London Stadium would be taken by Vinci Stadium, its operating company. West Ham would be consulted as anchor tenants, hence the talks with them.
