Chelsea Football Club announced today that all ticket prices for all matches at Stamford Bridge will remain unchanged next season.
This freeze, which covers season tickets, individual match tickets and hospitality lounges, means the 2013/14 season will be the sixth time in eight campaigns there has been a price freeze for Premier League and European competition knockout-phase tickets.
During that period there has been a reduction in seat prices for European competition group games, and the long-standing policy of discounted tickets for all non-hospitality seats for FA Cup and League Cup matches will continue next campaign.
For Premier League matches, the number of games in each of the three price categories will remain unaltered. This across-the-board price freeze covers any tickets that may go on general sale as well as sales to season-ticket holders and members.
Chief Executive Ron Gourlay said on the decision to keep the cost of football at the Bridge unchanged: ‘Economic conditions remain tough for many people and the club would like to thank our supporters for the consistently very good attendances we have had throughout this season.
‘Financial Fair Play regulations are now having an impact on clubs across Europe, but it was our hope a year ago when we announced prices would not be raised that this decision could be extended. We are pleased this has proved possible for 2013/14.’
Previous prize freezes covered the period between 2006 to 2010. Next season’s tickets will be the same as 2011/12 levels.
Season-ticket renewal forms and the full ticket policies for next season will be available in April.
