Chelsea stadium Stamford Bridge is in Cities: Skylines

Some other stadiums, too.

Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC (by far the greatest team the world has ever seen), is in Cities: Skylines.

No celery throwing, though.

Oh, and so are the stadiums of some other clubs, such as Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain. But none of those matter, really. I think we can all agree that Stamford Bridge is the star here.

The stadiums come to Colossal Order's city building game as part of the European Club Pack, which is out now. They work with the Match Day expansion, which was released for free in June. This lets you build sports venues into your cities so you can add revenue and make people happy.

That's probably why The Emirates Stadium isn't in there, eh?

That was fun, wasn't it?
