Valid tickets for Chelsea Football Club matches should only be sold at the face value shown on the ticket. If you pay more than the face value or have bought the ticket from a tout or an online ticket agency your ticket will be invalid and you are likely to be refused entry or ejected from the stadium.

However, if you send details of the tickets to toutinfo@chelseafc.com the matter will be investigated and, if the tickets are not forgeries, they will be validated. The unauthorised sale of football tickets is a criminal offence under UK law.

The club has recently discovered an online ticketing agency that purports to be an official outlet for Chelsea tickets, but which in fact sells tickets illegally at hugely inflated prices.

The only methods of buying tickets we support are either through the club directly, through Viagogo, our official ticket exchange partner or through Thomas Cook our official match package provider.

Chelsea Football Club reinforces that anybody found to be in possession of these illegal tickets, bought from either official-tickets.net or official-chelsea-tickets.com, will be ejected from the stadium.
