Please note that to buy shares you will need to return three items.
1. A COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM
2. COPY PHOTO ID
3. A COPY PROOF OF ADDRESS, such as a Utility Bill or Bank statement. Please do NOT include original documents.
If you are buying this as a gift for someone else, then you can include your ID instead of theirs.
We aim to get all shares issued within two weeks of receipt, but in most cases they will be in second class post (UK) or tracked mail (outside UK) within four days.
PLAYER SIGNED SHARES
Please note that we have a limited supply of shares signed by the players. Some are more popular than others and it is important to know that while we will try and get the player requested, that this is not always possible. Where there is a reasonable chance this will become available within four weeks, we will delay sending the share, however where it is not, we will issue the next best on the list.
Since we started selling shares, one of the most popular ways of buying a share has been the Pitch Presentations. You or a friend can go onto the pitch after the warm-up, and experience the atmosphere, before being presented with your share by one of the squad!
We are fortunate to have secured a limited amount of spaces for this brilliant offer, details are on this website, Facebook and Twitter pages, and you can contact us at email@example.com for details.
The cost is £200.00, with the framed share certificate signed by the player of your choice.
This is subject to the following Terms and Conditions:
The presentation is kindly arranged through Chelsea Football Club and they reserve the right to alter the above if necessary.
Dates and times of games are all subject to change due to the requirements of television.
The presentations will be made by a first team squad member. You will be invited onto the pitch hopefully just as the team come out for the warm up before the game. The person receiving the share will need to be at the designated meeting point no later than 45 minutes before kick off, and they will be escorted through the players tunnel. Unfortunately NO GUESTS can accompany them.
The presentation is at the edge of the pitch and takes place during a period when the players will be undertaking important warm up routines. The player selected to present your share, will be taking time out to do so, and we would firmly request that you do not abuse this generosity by interrupting him or the team further. ANYBODY DOING SO IS LIKELY TO BE ESCORTED FROM THE GROUND ENTIRELY.
Presentations will be made in groups of up to seven people.
The share will be signed by the first team player selected by you from the list of the most popular players available at the time of purchase.
A photographer will be on hand to record the presentation, and this emailed to the recipients as soon as possible after the day of the game. No video recording of the event is included. The photograph will be of the group and not individuals.
The presentation DOES NOT COME WITH A MATCH TICKET, so once the presentation is complete, (this will take approximately 10 minutes), the recipient will be escorted out of the tunnel onto the East Stand concourse, to either take their seat, or to leave the ground. Please note that we may be unable to change any match selection due to any change in day or time due to television requirements.
If you are unable to be at the presentation for whatever reason, we will attempt to find an alternative date. If however one is not available (ie the next game is already sold out) then a refund will NOT be forthcoming except in very exceptional circumstances.
Arrangements can be made for Disabled supporters to have the share presented in the usual way.
The share will be issued on receipt of the application, and a letter of invitation from Chelsea Pitch Owners sent to the shareholder outlining the procedure for the day. Where the share is a surprise or a gift the letter may be sent to an alternative address from that of the shareholder. Please also note that where the shareholder is on the share register before December, they will receive Company financial information prior to any AGM of the company which will be sent out in December.
The presentation is open to minors under 16, but they will need to be accompanied by ONE adult only who must stand as directed not with the presentation party on the pitch. Unfortunately, we can only accommodate one such application per match presentation.
There is no ready market for the sale of shares, and most shares are transfers for no value. Should you wish to transfer a CPO share please download and complete the transfer form, available below.
