Champions of Europe just a couple of years ago, Chelsea FC are well-established as one of the continent’s elite clubs – and fans flock to their West London stadium to see the Blues in action.
Situated close to the upscale avenues of Fulham Road and King’s Road, Chelsea’s reputation for glitz and glamour dates back decades. Consequently, a number of tourists who come to London make a trip to Stamford Bridge one of their main priorities. And while the club won’t be playing European football during the 2023 / 2024 season due to a disappointing previous campaign, watching Chelsea in action is still a major draw for football lovers everywhere – whether it’s at the famous Bridge or elsewhere, with away tickets often available too. We’ve also picked out some of the best options for buying Chelsea match tickets online.
Ticketgum are currently our number one choice for buying Chelsea game tickets online. The sports and football tickets broker has excellent availability for all games at Stamford Bridge. We found tickets starting at £106 GBP for a game against Nottingham Forest in early September. However, for more prestigious games, such as against Man City or Tottenham, prices can be somewhat steeper.
The company work with a large network of suppliers, with tickets usually advertised by fans who can’t attend games and are looking to resell. This means that Ticketgum receive the tickets prior to reselling them, so there’s almost zero risk of fakes or forgeries. Tickets are usually shipped two to three days before a fixture at the latest and if you’re staying overnight in a hotel or other accommodation you can have them delivered there. Alternatively, there are designated pick-up points within reach of the stadium where you can grab your tickets – ideal when you’re buying at the last minute. The company also have a strong Trustpilot rating, so you can make your purchase with maximum peace of mind.
Founded in 2000, StubHub have grown to become major player in the ticket resale sector. Sellers can price tickets how they wish, but helpfully the website shows you the face value price of each ticket. Buyers can ask for tickets to be delivered physically, as print-at-home, or as a mobile transfer. Availability tends to be very good, and when we searched for Chelsea matches we found tickets on offer for every remaining game of the current season, with prices as low as £95 for less prestigious fixtures. Additional fees for service, delivery and VAT, work out at around £35 per ticket, but to help you avoid a nasty surprise there’s a slider option that lets you view the fees before you book. StubHub also offer a FanProtect Guarantee that helps ensure the tickets are genuine, are the same or comparable with those you ordered, and will be delivered in time for the fixture.
