Fulham (SW London) is home to the 2014 and 2015 Premier League champions, which is the Chelsea football club (European style, aka soccer). The 41 thousand plus seating Stamford Bridge stadium has hosted Chelsea's home games since the founding of the club in 1905 by Gus Mears. Since 1997, the club has won 17 major trophies and has the 5th highest average all-time attendance in English football history. This makes them one of the most widely supported football clubs in the world. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich has owned the club since 2003.
Today, as their season ends, Fulham hosted a huge parade for their championship team. Helicopters flying overhead, immense crowds, players and their families riding in large trucks and a lot of loud noise made for an interesting day. This was not unlike what we have experienced in Boston for our champion teams.
