Supporters may be aware that for the Champions League away game against Schalke later this month, Chelsea supporters are being charged 57 euros for a match ticket whereas the home club are charging their members 52 euros for comparable seats.

Chelsea Football Club believes this to be in contravention of UEFA rules for the competition, so questioned the pricing with Schalke who informed us a reduction for their members has always been in place for Champions League games and approved by UEFA.

The club subsequently made a representation to UEFA who despite not disagreeing with our interpretation of the regulations, confirmed that they had sanctioned Schalke's membership pricing.

Therefore, we regret to inform our travelling supporters that the 57 euros price per ticket remains in place.
