Chelsea FC are one of the biggest football teams in the world, attracting fans from all over the world with their successes on the pitch, especially in the last decade.
While last season’s poor league performance was disappointing, new manager Antonio Conte seems to have the squad back in sync and picking up results, making it a great time to see Stamford Bridge in person.
The team currently sit fifth in the table with three wins from their first five games and will be hoping that last week’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool is a minor bump in the road as they approach a busy autumn full of fixtures.
There are plenty of opportunities to see the team in action in the coming weeks, with two massive ties sure to appeal to football fans. The first of these is on October 15th when last season’s winners Leicester come to Stamford Bridge, followed by a massive game against Manchester United and former manager Jose Mourinho.
Tickets for these games are likely to be tough to get hold of, so try to get in touch with the ticket office as soon as possible to see what is available. If it is sold out, keep an eye on resale websites where pre-owned tickets are sure to be on sale.
Even if you cannot attend one of these huge games, stadium tours are available throughout the week. These packages give visitors a fantastic insight into the matchday experience from the players’ perspective, with guides taking people through the changing rooms, commentary booths and other areas.
You will have the chance to pick up some merchandise in the official club shop, too.
How can I get to Stamford Bridge?
Travelling to football matches can be problematic due to the large amount of traffic close to stadiums, especially if they are close to urban areas.
Parking is usually limited or very expensive close to the venue, meaning you could spend a long time searching out an appropriate place to park, which will cut into the time you have in the stadium.
Similarly, trains can be particularly busy on match days, with fans travelling from all over the country to see the Blues in action. If transport is not booked far enough in advance, passengers may have to deal with significant price increases and may not even be able to reserve their own seat.
Alternatively, a coach can provide a quick and comfortable journey to the capital, with guaranteed seating and Wi-Fi to help you properly plan your time in London.
