SUNDERLAND AWAY DAY SUBSIDISED

Posted on: Fri 25 Oct 2013

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to confirm we will be offering a £10 discount to our supporters for away tickets to the Barclays Premier League match at Sunderland on Wednesday, December 4.

It means tickets will now be available to Chelsea fans for £24 rather than the original £34.

Senior (65 and over) tickets are priced at £13, while juniors (16 and under) are just £2, with subsidised return coach travel also available from Stamford Bridge for just £10.

Chelsea Chief Executive Ron Gourlay said: 'We recognise the difficulties in travelling to Sunderland on a midweek evening in the run up to Christmas. We hope this contribution of subsidised tickets and travel from the club will assist more of our fans to make the trip and get behind Jose and the team.'

Our initial allocation of tickets for the Sunderland game goes on sale to season ticket holders from Monday, November 11. Members will be able to purchase a ticket one week later on Monday, November 18.

Earlier this season, we promised to provide subsidised travel to a minimum of 10 Premier League away fixtures, with the Newcastle United game on November 2 the most recent, while a similar offer was also made available to supporters ahead of our Capital One Cup tie at Swindon Town in September.

Further information and matches will be announced when ticket news becomes available.
