WHAT IS AN OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB?
An Official Supporters Club is a group of passionate, like-minded fans who get together to watch Chelsea, attend fan events in their local towns, and often travel to Stamford Bridge as a group. Click here for more details.
HOW MANY PEOPLE DO I NEED FOR AN OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB?
You need to have at least 20 people in your club to reach 'Official Supporters Club' status. There are then 4 tiers of the club:
Official Supporters Club: 20-99 members
Official 100 Supporters Club: 100-499 members
Official 500 Supporters Club: 500-999 members
Official 1000 Supporters Club: 1,000+ members
The number of Members in an Official Supporters Club can be viewed at the top of that club’s page on The 5th Stand mobile app. This is accessed by clicking on the ‘Community’ tab, selecting ‘Official Supporters Club’ and ‘Find a Club’.
At the top of an official Supporters Club page on the app, there will be two numbers: Members and Followers. Members is the number of people within a club who have officially joined. Once someone clicks JOIN THIS CLUB, they will add to this number. Followers represents the people who are interested in a Supporters Club, and want to bookmark it to their ‘My Clubs’ tab in the app, which is more of a ‘social media’ style following, rather than showing commitment to join a club. It is the total number of Members which will count towards an Official Supporters Club’s Rewards Status.
If the Official Supporters Club would like access to tickets, they can opt into the Ticketing Scheme too. There are 3 tiers for the Ticketing Scheme -
Silver – minimum of 50 local True Blue members/season ticket holders (UK), 25 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Europe) & 15 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Rest of the World)
Gold - minimum of 70 local True Blue members/season ticket holders (UK), 50 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Europe) & 30 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Rest of the World)
Platinum - minimum of 110 local True Blue members/season ticket holders (UK), 70 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Europe) & 50 True Blue members/season ticket holders (Rest of the World)
Full policy details can be found here.
IS THERE A COST TO BE AN OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB?
For clubs on the Rewards scheme, there is no charge.
If you want to become a Ticketing club, there is a one-off £100 fee for the club as a whole. The club secretary for a Ticketing club can then charge their paid members on the ticketing scheme up to £10 each to cover admin costs.
Prices are in GBP for UK, Europe & Rest of the World.
