Chelsea FC fans thank new owner Todd Boehly for ticket price change

NOT

New Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has delighted fans just weeks into his tenure by freezing ticket prices for the new season.

The club confirmed on Wednesday that general admission tickets would no longer increase, while the much-maligned £2 reservation fee was also scrapped.

The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust thanked the new owners for the move.

A statement read: ‘The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust (CST) is delighted that Chelsea FC have frozen general admission season ticket prices for next season. It is encouraging that the new owners have listened to the supporters of CST and Chelsea. This decision will be good news for supporters facing a cost of living crisis and avoid additional burden.

“Since its introduction, the CSE has repeatedly said that the £2 booking fee per transaction is totally unjustifiable. The decision to remove this additional fee is important and will be appreciated by all.

However, CST have expressed concern over Westview season ticket prices, despite Chelsea having cut the two most expensive tiers by 25%. The price for the third tier remains unchanged at £1,500/

“While we welcome the reduction in the exorbitant initial price offered for tickets to Westview, CST remains disappointed with such a significant price increase. The increase will impact supporters at Stamford Bridge with fewer tickets available to members due to the relocation of existing season ticket holders from the West Stand Upper.
