As world-class striker Sam Kerr renews her contract with Chelsea Women until 2026, the club has temporarily renamed ‘Samford Bridge’ and ‘Kerrsmeadow’ in her honour.

Since signing for Chelsea in 2019, Kerr has scored an outstanding 99 goals in 128 matches. She has previously been awarded the Women’s Super League (WSL) Golden Boot and has been part of the squads who won back to back Women’s Super League and FA Cup titles.

Following the success of the club this year – including an unprecedented fifth consecutive Women’s Super League championship (seventh overall) alongside record-breaking attendances at the West London stadium – the signing marks the start of a new era in the continued growth of the team.

Chelsea Women striker, Sam Kerr said: “It’s really exciting and a very proud moment for me. Having the opportunity to stay at a club like Chelsea means a lot to me. I’m really excited to continue to push and to try to win trophies.”

General Manager, Paul Green added: “We are delighted that Sam has extended her deal with the club. Sam is a leader and one of the world’s best strikers and goalscorers. She has been very important to our success, and we look forward to welcoming her back from injury next season.”

Lydia Griffiths, Women’s Senior Communications Manager, Chelsea FC said: “Sam’s a valued member of the club and has been a huge part of this history-making women’s team. The Bridge has been Chelsea’s home for nearly 120 years and we know how much it means to Blues fans. We’ve been pioneers for the Women’s game and we will continue to lead the way with our athletes and our Club as we aim to reach even greater heights of success next season.”
