Matchday Child Mascot Policy
Children between the age of 6 and 12 years old act as mascots for the Chelsea team before each home and away game.
A waiting list operates for children to become mascots. New names are added in the order in which applications are received. We have made contact with applicants added in 2009 and will shortly be moving on to those added in 2010. Beyond this, we cannot give a definite wait time.
The length of the waiting list should be considered when making an application. For instance, a 10-year-old would not currently be added as the child will not reach the top of the list before reaching the age limit.
When confirmation is sent that a child has been added to the waiting list, it is stated that the club cannot guarantee the top of it will be reached before the age limit.
There are two Chelsea mascots at our home league fixtures and one at away league fixtures. Mascots are present for cup games as and when permitted by the competition's sponsor.
Anyone wishing to add a child to the list should send the child's name, address and date of birth to:
