History[edit]

The board of directors heeded the advice by the Ghana Football Association to use the name Berekum Chelsea rather than the Bechem Chelsea. The Club was later moved to Bechem, its name was changed to Bechem Chelsea in conformity with its home base.[2]

Coffie, the club's Communications Director said that preparations were underway in developing a football park at Bechem to serve as the team’s home ground.[3][4]

The club's name and home kit are inspired by Chelsea, the club played at Ohene Djan Sports Stadium for their first Glo Premier League match on 24 November 2008 and won the match with a 3–2 victory against Liberty Professionals.[5] The club started the 2010–11 Ghanaian Premier League season very strong and then eventually went on to win the league.[6][7][8]
