Chelsea FC's Stadium Offers A Little Something For Everyone (Photos)

If a sports fan is interested in checking out a stadium that does a lot with a little, then a trip to the Fulham section of Southwest London maybe in store.

Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea FC of the English Premiere League, uses its relatively small parcel of densely populated urban acreage to house a wide array of entertainment, dining and lodging facilities, in addition to its legendary football pitch.

Below is a glimpse at some of the unique aspects of this 138-year-old venue, which has undergone a series of renovations though the years.
