Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are coming together to support better mental health by taking part in The Mind Series next month.
Now, following the Government’s confirmation that restrictions on large outdoor events have been lifted, Chelsea FC is delighted to confirm that we can welcome a near capacity crowd back to Stamford Bridge for our home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday 4 August at 7.45pm.
£5 from the sale of each match ticket will be donated to Mind and the Chelsea FC Foundation, with 25% of this amount being donated to Mind and 75% being donated to the Chelsea FC Foundation*. Each organisation will use its donation to further its charitable and community activities.
It will also be the first opportunity for Chelsea supporters to see the Champions of Europe in action at our home stadium following the Champions League triumph in May.
Season ticket holders will be able to buy their own seat on Wednesday 14 July.
Tickets will go on sale to members on a loyalty points basis on Friday 16 July, with season ticket holders and members able to purchase an extra two tickets (maximum of three per person) on Tuesday 20 July.
Tickets will be priced at £30 for adults (£25 in East Upper restricted view seats) and £15 for concessions in all parts of the stadium.
Club Chelsea members can purchase either a hospitality package at £180 or ticket only at £50 within Club Chelsea. Members should contact their account manager to book.
Tickets will not go on sale to away supporters. Tickets will be sold in line with current Government guidance - should guidance change ahead of the event, all bookings are subject to alteration and we shall contact anyone affected as soon as possible.
Why are we coming together to support better mental health with Mind?
Demand for Mind’s services, including its Infoline, has increased exponentially during the pandemic, with latest figures released by the Office for National Statistics showing one in five adults experiencing symptoms of depression, compared to one in 10 prior to the pandemic.
Mind’s own survey of 16,000 people during the initial lockdown also found that two in three young people (68 per cent) and three in five adults (60 per cent) said their mental health had got worse.
Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are uniting with Mind to raise vital funds and use our joint global reach and platforms to promote mental health awareness as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Mind Series builds on work already being undertaken by the Clubs and their local Minds, including the Chelsea Foundation and Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing & Hounslow Mind. Chelsea Champions is Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow Mind’s latest project with the Chelsea Foundation. Launched during Mental Health Awareness Week, it provides extra-curricular activities and workshops to help schools raise awareness of mental health issues for pupils and parents.
This is one of a broad range of prevention and recovery services that Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow Mind delivers to ensure everyone gets the support and respect they need to stay well.
