Matthew Harding answered Chelsea’s call for new financing in 1993 with an investment of £26.5m. This money went a long way into building the stadium. The North Stand, which had only just been completed when he died, now bears his name – the Matthew Harding Stand. Recently, the Harding Family sent an open letter to the Blues, which they ended with KEEP THE BLUE FLAG FLYING HIGH! We’re sure you agree with them, so why not order the magnificent Chelsea F.C. Flag ES for yourself, and wave it as you watch the Blues in action.
