A regular festive fixture in the Chelsea calendar, the Annual Lunch is back for 2021 and tickets for the event on Friday 3 December are on sale now.

Past players come together with supporters to celebrate all things Chelsea FC and mark our status as the reigning Champions of Europe, as well commemorating 10 seasons since our first Champions League triumph with a look back at the road to that final with memories and anecdotes from some of our legendary past players.

The most recent event in 2019 featured guest appearances from Petr Cech, Claude Makelele, Claire Rafferty and Carlo Cudicini, as well as reminiscing in the 50th anniversary season of our 1970 FA Cup triumph with Ron Harris, Tommy Baldwin, John Hollins and Marvin Hinton.
