Ten years landmark for Abramovich

Monday marked the 10th anniversary of Roman Abramovich becoming the owner of Chelsea Football Club, heralding a decade of success on and off the pitch.

Mr Abramovich arrived at Stamford Bridge on 1 July 2003 and saw us win the Premier League just two seasons later, our first top-flight title in 50 years.

His first 10 years with the club have brought us many more trophies and landmark moments since, including our first back-to-back league titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06, our first domestic Double in 2009/10 and, of course, claiming the Champions League trophy for the first time in 2012.

The increasingly packed trophy cabinet at the Bridge tells only part of the achievement made by Chelsea and Mr Abramovich in his tenure so far, though. The future of the club looks bright thanks to the opening of our state-of-the-art Cobham training ground in 2007, soon followed by the equally impressive on-site youth Academy and community hub.

The Blues also now embrace our heritage more than ever before, having introduced a more traditional club crest and welcoming our former players back into the fold. The launch of the club's own charity, the Chelsea Foundation , also showed our commitment to good causes.
