Swindon Town Football Club is a professional football club based in Swindon, Wiltshire. Since turning professional in 1894, the club has enjoyed periods of success, most notably during the period 1968-1970 when they won the 1969 League Cup (defeating Arsenal at Wembley Stadium) and secured promotion to the Second Division in the same season. League Cup success earned the club its first invitations to European competitions, but they were not eligible to participate because they played in the then Third Division. As compensation they were entered into the 1969 Anglo-Italian League Cup and the 1970 Anglo-Italian Cup, with Swindon winning both. Swindon Town won promotion to the Premier League during the 1992-93 season, the only time the club has played in the top level of English football.
Chelsea have only played Swindon in the league on four occasions; in the Second Division in 1988-89, and in the Robins' only season in the top flight in 1993-94. However the clubs have met several times in the cups, with four FA Cup ties in the early 20th century followed over forty years later by a League Cup tie in 1963 and three meetings in the Full Members Cup in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
