Chelsea last month asked supporters and amateur architects for their input on the plans for the new-look Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League giants want to replace the exisiting Stamford Bridge with a 60,000-seater stadium, subject to approval from Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

3D renderings of the new Stamford Bridge in pictures:

If given the green light, the Blues want the new gates to the stadium to sit prominently outside the stadium on Fulham Road, next to the railway line.

The club have launched a competition to offer fans the chance to design these gates and entries must be submitted by March 24.

On April 15 a short-list of six will be selected and publicised by the Special Gates Committee.

Two finalists will then be selected with the winner chosen in the stadium on May 15, when Chelsea host their last game of the season against title challengers Leicester.

GetWestLondon contributor, Vano, is throwing his hat into the ring to have his ideas considered and wants your input to help create a winning entry.

What would you like to see from the new gates? Are there any specific details such as imagery of famous players or noteworthy dates such as 1905 incorporated?

How prominently should the colour blue feature and should the gates be tall and imposing or smaller and more subtle?

If you can offer any insight into your dream design for the new gates, please use our comments section below to help Vano with his plans.
