Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I have been a Chelsea fan for about 15 years, and have just moved over to London from Australia. I would like the opportunity to attend as many matches as possible for the upcoming (2012/13) season, but understand that it's unlikely that I will be able to get a season ticket.

My question, then, is regarding memberships. Are they any good (ie worth getting)? I'm interested to know anyone's experiences with them, ie can you normally get tickets for most of the league matches, and are European tickets readily available? And is it easy to then move up from the membership to a full season ticket?

Any advice is appreciated.

Yes, membership makes sense. You will be able to buy tickets for all games (provided you build up loyalty points, which isn't that hard to do if you go to most games - especially cup games). In practice, most home league games except the really big ones are easy to get, regardless of points.

The difficulty is mainly re cup finals and away games. Season ticket holders will get first shout on the likes of Champions League and FA Cup finals and members don't get much of a look in (although I think some got tickets this year for the FA Cup final at the last minute).

Membership also gives you the chance to buy away tickets - some of the bigger London away games like Arsenal are typically done on loyalty points but a lot of the other away games are reasonably easy to get. Wigan on a Wednesday night in November anyone?

Most seasons there is an opportunity for members to "trade up" to a season ticket for the following season. The number of points it takes varies wildly - it is a function of how many STs don't renew and how many STs the club wants.

I think if we dont get CL football then maybe some of the "fans" will not renew their season tickets so if there isnt enough demand then they will go on general sale like last year.

For the whole point system, say the FA Cup says you need 60 points or whatever to get a ticket. Does it take away the points to purchase or do you just need that amount?

You just need the points. Though it would stress alot of people out trying to decide.
