Chelsea Football Club have one of the most notorious football hooligan firms The Chelsea Headhunters.

During the Height of the Chelsea Headhunters era in the 70s and 80s, The National Front and the British National Party would sell their newspapers around the stadium and among main entrances and pubs. Stamford Bridge the home of Chelsea Football Club became the new recruitment ground for the far right.

Before Chelsea Headhunters formed there was a previous firm which was known as Chelsea Shed Boys which ran from 1960s to 1985, this firm later turned into Chelsea Headhunters.


The Chelsea Headhunters have little to any allies, however Rangers Football Club and Linfield Football Club were to well known allies.

Chelsea Headhunters weren’t short of rivals, with some of the more well known being Millwall Bushwackers, Inter City Firm, Leeds United Service Crew, and The Herd.

As the Founder of Away Grounds, I love travelling to watch football matches throughout the UK. I play soccer for Leigh Genesis FC and support Man Utd. I set up Away Grounds with the desire to share my passion for football with other like-minded footy fans. When travelling to away fixtures there was not enough information on a football away days guide so we have set up to bridge this gap. I apologise when I use the term "Soccer" but we have some US followers also lol
