Getting tickets for football matches at Stamford Bridge has become an increasingly difficult task in recent years. The Blues have become a European powerhouse over the last 15 years, and attract fans from all over the world. There is certainly a misconception attached to the club that going to games is near impossible due to the high demands, but with this article we will show you how easy it is to get your hands on tickets.
The most popular way fans can purchase tickets is via the club’s website – www.chelseafc.com. Here, you can find all relevant information about upcoming matches and the sales criteria for each game.
Matches at Stamford Bridge are always in high demand and you usually have to become a member in order to apply for Premier League tickets. Most tickets never reach general sale, with season ticket holders getting priority alongside long-standing members in the bigger fixtures.
Buying a season ticket guarantees being able to watch all 19 home games for the Premier League. Season ticket holders have their seats reserved for all 19 Premier League home games, and can be purchased on the club’s website.
Similarly, a club membership can be bought on the site, and pricing for these are are as follows: Adult – £28 … Teen/Junior – £22.
Tickets for home Premier League matches go on sale 42 days before the match, and can be applied for as follows: Week 1 – one ticket per member … Week 2 – two extra tickets per season ticket holders and members (maximum of three per person) … Week 3 – general sale (four tickets per person).
However, if you don’t want to purchase a membership package or season ticket, there are still ways of buying official club tickets for Chelsea. There are many agencies that act as third-parties, buying tickets from members and selling them on at a higher price. These sites, such as Viagogo, are very good for those who are visiting East London on a one off.
Due to the strict competition for tickets, Premier League games might be a tough ask to get tickets for. But cup games like the Carabao Cup, The Emirates FA Cup and the Champions League are sometimes put on general sale, making them a much more accessible way of watching Chelsea.
