Tickets are on general sale for the start of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup campaign this season, which we now know will be a match at home versus Grimsby Town.
The Mariners beat their fellow League Two side Macclesfield Town on penalties on Tuesday evening. The game, which was restaged after the original second round meeting had to be abandoned due to heavy rain at the end of last month, finished 0-0 at Grimsby’s Blundell Park after 90 minutes so went straight to spot-kicks from which Grimsby prevailed 5-4.
Tickets for Chelsea versus Grimsby Town which takes place on Wednesday 25 September are just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors! Make sure you do not miss out on watching our Carabao Cup journey begin at Stamford Bridge.

We have never previously played Grimsby in the League Cup. Our most recent meeting with the Lincolnshire side was in the FA Cup, back in February 1996 when we drew 0-0 on a freezing night on Humberside and then won the replay 4-1 when Michael Duberry, Mark Hughes, Gavin Peacock and John Spencer were the Chelsea scorers.
Grimsby are currently seventh in League Two with 11 points from their first seven games. This is the first time they have reached this stage of the League Cup since 2005. Chelsea made it to the final last year.
You can secure your seat at Stamford Bridge and watch our Carabao Cup journey begin with tickets just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors.
