Date and ticket information for FA Youth Cup opener

Chelsea Under-18s will begin their 2021/22 FA Youth Cup campaign next month, with a time, date and ticket information now confirmed for our third-round tie...

The young Blues will begin their journey in this season's competition at Kingsmeadow on Sunday 12 December, with kick-off at 12 noon.

We will be taking on our counterparts from Leyton Orient, who have beaten Leatherhead and Newport County to reach this stage. It will be the first Youth Cup meeting between Chelsea and the O's in 27 years since a side featuring Mark Nicholls and Jody Morris crashed out in a second round replay.

Tickets for the game are on general sale now priced at £5 for adults and £3 for concessions (over-65s and under-20s). Click here to buy!

All supporters attending our home games this season will need to provide evidence they are at low risk of transmitting Covid-19 to enter Stamford Bridge and Kingsmeadow. This is to increase the safety and comfort of our supporters, players and staff as we begin hosting capacity crowds for the first time since March last year.

Supporters will need to provide proof of full Covid-19 vaccination (with both doses received at least 14 days prior to the match) or proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT - from age 11 and over) carried out within 48 hours of the fixture kicking off.

Proof of full vaccination should be supplied via your NHS Covid Pass on the NHS app, or a vaccination letter. Supporters displaying a negative Lateral Flow result should do so on the NHS app, or via a text message or email from NHS Test and Trace.

Stewards will check your Covid-19 status at your point of entry. If you are using your phone, please ensure it has sufficient battery.
