And now, thanks to the Metro, Blues fans have been given a look into what their new home will look like with the release of a series of pictures detailing their plans.

The redevelopment of the ground is said to be the brainchild of owner Roman Abramovic, who is hoping to leave the new ground as his legacy when he eventually hands over the running of the club to his son.

Originally appearing in the Daily Mail, the new ground will reportedly take the capacity up to 60,000, increasing it from it’s current capability to hold just 41,798, making it far more suitable to home the current Premier League champions.

The pictures were released as part of a consultation with locals that will be close to the ground while building takes place.

Instead of swish futuristic designs, the plans have apparently taken their inspiration from Westminster Abbey.

It would make a refreshing change to the ultra modern glass and concrete bowls that clubs usually spring for.
