The birth of Chelsea Football Club


Friday, March 10 – 1905
The much talked of new football club at Stamford Bridge has become an accomplished fact. At a meeting held last night it was decided to form a limited liability professional company under the of the “Chelsea F.C.”

It was decided to apply for admission to the first division of the Southern League, so that still another candidate is in the running for the “vacancies.”

From among many applications for the post of manager five were selected for further consideration in the course of the next few days.
