Chelsea are set to announce a naming rights sponsor for their Stamford Bridge stadium in the new year.
This follows the club's failed attempt to buy back the land on which the ground is built, which could have facilitated a move to a new venue.
Chief executive Ron Gourlay said: "We have outgrown our stadium.
"We hope to make an announcement on naming rights in the next six to eight months. It would make a big step as we have to drive up the revenues."
