Premier League football club Chelsea has said that next season’s general admission ticket prices will stay the same as 2021/2022.
The club has also said that booking fees have been removed and that prices for the Westview stand for the 2022/2023 season are being reduced in select areas. Chelsea memberships for next season will also be available to purchase from July 4.
General admission season ticket renewals opened yesterday (Thursday) and the deadline for renewing an instalment plan will be Thursday June 23, while the deadline for renewing by card payment will be Thursday June 30.
The booking transaction fees have been removed after discussions with the Supporter Advisors to the Board.
Season ticket prices for Westview, which is part of the club’s new hospitality offering at Stamford Bridge (pictured), will be reduced by 25% in Tiers 1 and 2 for the 2022/2023 season. Prices for season ticket holders in Westview Tier 3 will remain unchanged from the prices announced in October and will include all domestic cup home games.
Following the price announcement in October last year, the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust called on the club to reconsider its prices for the upper tier of the West Stand, which forms part of the Westview refurbishment.
The window for Westview and the Club Chelsea season ticket renewals also opened yesterday and will close Friday July 8.
Concessionary rates are available in a number of areas for junior supporters under the age of 20 and for senior supporters aged 65 and above.
The Chelsea Ticket Exchange will also factor in the 2022/2023 season, which means that season ticket-holders who are unable to attend a match have the option to sell their ticket to another season ticket-holder or member through a secure platform. Only season ticket-holders and member can purchase a ticket via the Exchange.
In the final months of last season, Chelsea was unable to sell new tickets after its previous owner and Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
At the end of May, a consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital completed its acquisition of Chelsea. Boehly also co-owns Major League Baseball (MLB)’s LA Dodger and the National Basketball Association (NABA)’s LA Lakers.
Co-controlling owner of Chelsea Boehly said: “We will continue to seek fan input as we plan for next season and the years ahead. Our mission is to create the best fan experience in football.”
