Chelsea's new Stamford Bridge stadium will have a capacity of 60,000 and include a new walkway (top, leading diagonally to stadium) from the nearby Fulham Broadway Tube station
Chelsea Football Club have been given permission by the local council to build a new 500m 60,000-seat stadium.
Hammersmith and Fulham council's planning committee have backed plans to demolish the current 41,600-capacity Stamford Bridge stadium.
The plans include a walkway from the nearby District Line station.
"We are grateful that planning permission was granted for the redevelopment of our historic home," Chelsea said in a statement.
"The committee decision does not mean that work can begin on site. This is just the latest step, although a significant one, that we have to take before we can commence work, including obtaining various other permissions."
London Mayor Sadiq Khan will have the final say on whether Chelsea can build their new stadium.
The new stadium has been designed by architects Herzog and de Meuron, who were also responsible for the "Birds Nest" Olympic stadium in Beijing.
The proposals could mean owner Roman Abramovich has to find a temporary home for the current Premier League leaders for up to three years, with both Twickenham Stadium and Wembley Stadium being looked at as possible options.
