The Blues

Shot with Olympus E520
Or at least, their football ground. This is where Chelsea live, in Stamford Bridget, they are known as "The Blues" because of the colour of their strip. I can think of 10 London football clubs with sizeable stadiums: Arsenal, Charlton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Milwall, Orient, QPR, Spurs, West Ham - I think each of these has a capacity of over 20,000, without considering Wembley (which doesn't belong to any club). Is this some kind of record for any city? What's it like in the States?

I can't think of anything that would come close in the States. Most cities would only have one team of a specific sport, and therefore only one stadium for it. New York has Giants Stadium as home to two American football teams and one MLS soccer squad. You could include Yankee Stadium and Citi Field for baseball, but then we would have to include London's cricket grounds.
