Stamford Bridge London says it is experiencing a "Brexit Boom", revealing a 10 per cent increase in enquiries and bookings since the EU Referendum.


The home of Chelsea Football Club says the increased demand has come from both UK and international clients, and says it will continue its strategic approach as negotiations begin on leaving the EU.


Simon Hunter, head of venue and brand at Chelsea Football Club, said: "Since the EU referendum result in June, the value of the pound has fallen by 10 per cent, which whilst it cannot be considered a positive for the wider UK economy, has resulted in the ‘Brexit-Boom’, an occurrence that has been widely reported by UK media.


"We have seen a good increase in enquires and bookings over the last three months; with a 10 per cent rise in enquiries since early July.


"Ultimately, businesses still need to meet; meet with their team, their clients and potential new business. The requirement and need fundamentally is still here and we are still delivering the same high quality service that clients have come to expect from us. It’s important that we continue to promote the fact that it’s ‘business as usual’ and we are very much behind the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan’s, #LondonIsOpen campaign."


It comes after the venue achieved 6 per cent growth in bookings in 2014/15, it's third consecutive year of growth.
