Similarly to a lot of clubs in the Premier League, Chelsea have entered a new era in the 2018-19 season and demand for football tickets has been as high as ever.
Maurizio Sarri replaced Antonio Conte as manager in the summer – passing the baton from one controversial figure to another – and brought top midfielder Jorginho with him from Napoli which contributed to season tickets selling out in record time this summer.
The supporters who have been lucky enough to secure their seat at Stamford Bridge for the current campaign would have had to pay top dollar, especially adults.
Chelsea football tickets are known to be the second most expensive in the country behind Arsenal’s, with the cheapest season ticket costing £750 and the dearest £1250. The club’s cheapest single match tickets are also the highest in England, priced at £47 to £87.
Of course, a season ticket at Chelsea comes with plenty of benefits though, as it does at every club, and here are the main ones.
Watch all 19 Premier League homes games from your seat
As soon as you purchase a season ticket, your seat for all 19 of Chelsea’s 19 home league games is guaranteed and now there’s a way to not lose money if you can’t actually use your football ticket for a match.
Supporters can use the Official Ticket Exchange, which allows members who are looking to go to a few games a season take a season ticket holder’s seat for a match they cannot attend.
You’d want to use your Chelsea football ticket as much as possible though, as Loyalty Points are counted at Stamford Bridge and you need 131 points to be able to apply for a season ticket for the following campaign.
Validity for the UEFA away scheme
Loyalty points link into Chelsea’s UK and UEFA away schemes. Both schemes have limited spaces on them and are what fans can use to buy their away football tickets for both league, domestic cup and European matches on the road.
Away league cup final football tickets are allocated to the fans with the most loyalty points accumulated, leaving season ticket holders with a very good chance.
Guaranteed admission into cup fixtures
Similarly to many Premier League clubs, the Carabao Cup is not included with a season ticket and supporters are made to pay separately for it. However, your season tickets allows you to guarantee yourself a seat for all the FA Cup and Champions League or Europa League homes games throughout the season.
This is a great opportunity to watch Chelsea play Europe’s best and you don’t have to worry about missing out – the season ticket has you covered.
You can, of course, choose to opt out of the cup scheme, meaning there’ll be more Chelsea football tickets available for members and non-members to snap up either season ticket holder choose that they’re not interested.
They are just a few of the many benefits of being a Chelsea season ticket holder – it’s well worth it.
