I think there is some concern at the Bridge, and in the boardroom…
TICKET PRICES FROZEN
Posted on: Thu 08 Mar 2012
Chelsea Football Club today (Thursday) announced a policy of no rise in ticket prices for the 2012/13 season for all seats at Stamford Bridge, including all hospitality areas.
The price freeze covers season tickets, matchday tickets for members and general sale seats for adults, juniors and senior citizens.
Prices for all categories of Barclays Premier League games (AA, A and B) will remain the same as the current 2011/12 season.
The long-standing policy of discounted tickets for FA Cup and Carling Cup matches continues as prices for those competitions will also be frozen.
The one change to pricing occurs should we qualify for the Champions League. Group stage match tickets will be reduced to £35 for adults and £17.50 for seniors/juniors from their current prices of £40 and £20 respectively (East Lower Family Centre tickets for group stage games next season would be £35 adults, £15.50 seniors/juniors).
Prices in all hospitality areas for all competitions are to remain at their current level.
Chief executive Ron Gourlay said: ‘The club has taken the decision not to increase prices for the coming season as we deeply appreciate our loyal following at Stamford Bridge and feel this is the right approach to take in the current economic conditions where budgets may be under pressure.’
Season ticket renewal deadlines will be as follows:
Customers paying by the instalment plan will need to renew by 5pm on 11 May.
Customers paying by other means will need to renew by 5pm on 18 May.
Season ticket forms will be sent out in mid April.
Hospitality clients will be contacted during the week commencing 12 March and sent a renewal pack.
