Founded 26 years ago in 1992, Chelsea Women are the current holders of the Women's Super League, having remarkably won the league unbeaten last season, finishing six points ahead of Manchester City. In addition to winning the league they were also double winners, lifting the FA Women's Cup, beating Arsenal 3-1 at Wembley.
The team play at Kingsmeadow in Kingsmeadow upon Thames, where English League One side, AFC Wimbledon also play their home matches. Having moved their last season, the stadium holds a capacity of 4,850.
Chelsea Women are managed by Emma Hayes, who has been in the role since August 2012. Under her guidance Chelsea have won two league and cup doubles, winning both the Super League and FA Cup last season and in 2014-15.
Last season Chelsea reached the Champions League semi-finals, but were beaten by Wolfsburg 1-5 on aggregate. It will prove to be a good test for Rita Guarino's girls, who could potentially face Chelsea Women at some point in this season's Women's Champions League.
