Kingsmeadow (Kingston upon Thames, London)

Kingsmeadow

Kingsmeadow is a football stadium that is the current home of Chelsea Women and Chelsea U21s. The stadium originally opened in 1989 as the home of Kingstonian F.C., who marked the occasion with a friendly against Queens Park Rangers.

Following their foundation, AFC Wimbledon agreed a ground-share with Kingstonian in 2002. After one season, the club purchased the ground from the owner of Kingstonian before selling to Chelsea in 2015 to fund their own new stadium, who intended on using Kingsmeadow for their women’s team and youth teams.

The Chelsea teams began playing their matches at the stadium in 2017 which unfortunately left no room for Kingstonian, who have subsequently been left with no permanent home. AFC Wimbledon left for their new Plough Lane stadium in 2020.

Tenants: Chelsea Women (Women’s Super League) & Chelsea U21
