Stockport County Football Club is a professional football club based in Stockport, Greater Manchester. They are nicknamed The Hatters, although they are usually referred to by supporters simply as County. The Club formed in 1883 as Heaton Norris Rovers, shortly after merging with a similarly named club, Heaton Norris F.C. and on 24 May 1890 changed their name to Stockport County Football Club with reference to the newly formed County Borough of Stockport. They joined the Football League in 1900, and have competed in it continuously since 1905. Having spent most of their history in the lower reaches of the Football League, the 1990s were notably successful, with the club competing in the second tier for five seasons. Instability on and off the pitch led to Stockport quickly tumbling back down the leagues, narrowly avoiding a drop into the Football Conference in 2006. The club was at risk of extinction in 2010, but was saved by a consortium of local business people.

Chelsea's first ever competitive match was against Stockport, the newly-formed side losing 1-0 at Edgeley Park on the opening day of the 1905-06 season. All subsequent matches against Stockport County were played in the Second Division in the first couple of decades of Chelsea's existence, with 1926 the year of the last meeting between the two sides.
