Has Chelsea ever been relegated? Chelsea FC were one of the founding members of the Premier League when the division was introduced in the 1992-93 season. The Blues were joined in the Premier League by the 21 other founding members: Arsenal, Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers, Coventry City, Crystal Palace, Everton, Ipswich Town, Leeds United, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Middlesbrough, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, Oldham Athletic, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wimbledon. Since then, the Blues have always remained in the Premier League, having not yet faced relegation. That makes Chelsea FC part of an elite group of clubs who have never been relegated from the Premier League and who have played in every season since the division was founded in 1992. Those clubs are: Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Everton, Liverpool FC, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. It should be noted though that technically speaking, Brighton and Hove Albion can also claim never to have been relegated from the Premier League, as they have been in the division since 2017-18. However, the Seagulls were not one of the founding members of the league. Chelsea FC’s lowest finish in the Premier League (at the time of writing) came in the 1993-94 season, when the Blues finished in 14th place in the table with Glenn Hoddle as their player-manager. The answer is no. The south west London side are part of a small and elite group of clubs who have never been relegated from the Premier League in its current format. With the Premier League’s debut campaign having been the 1992-93 season, Chelsea FC, along with five other clubs, can proudly declare that they have competed in every single top-flight season since then and have never suffered the drop.
