BREAKING: Chelsea freeze season ticket prices, issues a strong statement; Here is what the club said.
Although it hasnt been a very beautiful year for Chelsea so far and the run is not good to be frank, Chelsea have frozen their general admission season ticket prices for yet another year.
The move made by the Blues is one they have stood by for the past 12 years.
Despite spending an unprecedented £600 million on new players over the last two transfer windows, the club are in the bottom half of the Premier League.
With co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali struggling to adapt to the Premier League, the ticket price freeze is seen as a gesture of goodwill towards the fans.
In a statement, the club said: “This season has not produced the results that any of us want. We know what we are working towards, but equally we know that will require hard work, determination and commitment. We all want to see Chelsea back where we belong and to share many more winning moments together at Stamford Bridge.
“Adult general admission (GA) season tickets have been frozen since 2011/12, meaning since 2005, season ticket prices have fallen in real terms by 32%. Like many industries, our costs have also risen significantly. Operating Stamford Bridge and delivering matchdays have been particularly subjected to inflationary pressures – up 31% since 2018.
“Equally, we are acutely aware of the rise in cost of living and the impact that has on our supporters.
“Looking at all of these factors, the Board has decided to freeze GA season tickets for the 2023/24 season.”
