European football returns to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 18 September when the Blues open our Champions League campaign against Basel, with tickets for the game now on sale at a reduced price of £35 for adults and £17.50 for juniors and seniors.

Having won both of our home matches this season so far - against Hull City and Aston Villa - we will go into the game confident of securing the three points, and having not been beaten in the group stages of the competition at the Bridge since 2003, supporters have every reason to be optimistic.

The Swiss side provide familiar opposition after we played them over two legs in the semi-finals of last season's Europa League.

The first leg, which was played away from home, saw David Luiz seal a 2-1 victory with a last-gasp free-kick, while at home we ran out comfortable 3-1 winners to book our place in the final.

Chelsea, back under the guidance of Mourinho, are back in the Champions League, so make sure you come along and get behind the team.

Tickets are currently on sale to season ticket holders and members (one per person). From 7am - 4pm tomorrow (Friday) season ticket holders and members will be able to purchase an additional two tickets, and from 4pm onwards tickets will go on general sale.

Tickets can be purchased from the Stamford Bridge box office, online or via the call centre on 0871 984 1905.
