Chelsea FC today launched our season ticket sales and renewals process for the 2023/24 season.
This season has not produced the results that any of us want. We know what we are working towards, but equally we know that will require hard work, determination and commitment. We all want to see Chelsea back where we belong and to share many more winning moments together at Stamford Bridge.
Adult general admission (GA) season tickets have been frozen since 2011/12, meaning since 2005, season ticket prices have fallen in real terms by 32%. Like many industries, our costs have also risen significantly. Operating Stamford Bridge and delivering matchdays have been particularly subjected to inflationary pressures – up 31% since 2018.
Equally, we are acutely aware of the rise in cost of living and the impact that has on our supporters.
Looking at all of these factors, the Board has decided to freeze GA season tickets for the 2023/24 season.
The club needs to grow all our revenue streams – including matchday – to ensure we operate on a sustainable basis. We will take some time next season to review our overall ticketing strategy and approach, consulting with our Fan Advisory Board and other key stakeholders to ensure supporters’ voices are heard as we look to the future. This will include looking at the number of different price points across the stadium to ensure all our seats reflect their value and demand, alongside a review of the current approach to concessions.
The club will continue to offer payment plans to spread the cost of season tickets across the season, and the ticket exchange will be available for season ticket holders to offer their unused seats to season ticket holders and members.
The deadline to renew for existing season ticket holders is 2 June 2023. If you are paying by payment plan finance the deadline is Thursday 25 May 2023
We recognise and greatly appreciate the ongoing commitment our fans continue to make in showing their support for the team.
