The Chelsea football team is an English professional team that competes in the Premier League. It was first founded in 1905 and is based in Fulham City. It's one of the most successful clubs in English football history.

"The Blues", as they're commonly regarded by their fans, were first founded by Gus Mears. And they won their first major trophy back in 1955. However, their most successful period has taken place under the ownership of Roman Abramovich.

He took over Chelsea FC in 2003 and has since brought a plethora of trophies to the Stamford Bridge, their home stadium. In their history, Chelsea have won over thirty championships, including six league titles and five European trophies. Though five of the six league championships and three of the five European titles were won in the Abramovich Era.

Their most successful manager has been Jose Mourinho, who has won eight titles in his two stints at Stamford Bridge. Their current manager, Frank Lampard is regarded as their most legendary figure along with the likes of John Terry, Didier Drogba, David Webb, John Hollins, and Pat Nevin.

In 2016, Chelsea was ranked as the seventh most valuable football club in the world £1.15 billion, by Forbes magazine. As of 2016, Chelsea are ranked eighth in the Deloitte Football Money League with annual commercial revenue of £322.59 million.

Most recently, they won the UEFA Champions League under the leadership of manager Thomas Tuchel. They beat the Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 in the final as Kai Havertz took the Blues to the promised land.
