The Club have been offered two options of allocation by Chelsea. The first allocation is a total of 1,558 tickets. Obviously we would expect demand to be sufficient enough for this number to be quickly sold. Option two allows a further 1,585 tickets to be allocated. These, however, can not be returned and must be paid for in advance.
Whilst we would hope that as many of our fans as possible will travel to this fixture, in light of the total number sold for last seasons league fixture (2,668), to enable the ticket office to gauge the exact demand for this fixture ticket arrangements will be as follows:
All supporters wishing to attend this fixture must apply using a postal application. All applications are to be received no later then 5.00pm on Friday, August 30. (Includes Bondholders, season ticket holders, Club members and general applicants)
After this date, the ticket office will then count the total number of ticket requests within the applications. It is the total number of requests received that will decide as to what allocation is chosen. Applications received will be processed in the normal prioritised order from Monday, September 2. Tickets will then be released generally from Friday, September 6.
It is the Club's intention that we will always assist in enabling as many of our supporters wishing to follow the team as possible. Our fantastic away support is always appreciated and we look forward to seeing and hearing as many of you as possible, not just at Stamford Bridge, but all over the country during the season.
*Ticket prices for the game against Chelsea on Saturday, September 28 are: £40 Adults, £20 Senior Citizens, £11 Under-16s.
