General admission ticket prices for next season at Stamford Bridge are unchanged for the fourth year running.

The freeze applies to season tickets and individual match tickets in the non-hospitality sections of the stadium, and includes seats sold to members and those which go on general sale.

Home domestic cup games remain at discounted rates for all ages regardless of the round of the competition or the opposition. European group stage games will also remain discounted and tickets for European knockout games are frozen.

The proportion of Premier League games in each of the three price categories is also unchanged.

In addition to the price news, there are three major changes to the club’s ticket policy applicable from the 2014/15 season.

Five loyalty points will be awarded for each ticket bought for any appearance the team may make in the UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup or the FA Community Shield. Previously there were no loyalty points for such games.

Also, for the first time the away matches at Crystal Palace, Fulham and West Ham will all be sold on a loyalty-points basis. The third major change is that disabled supporters will be able to purchase tickets by telephone.

Previous prize freezes covered the period between 2006 and 2010. Next season’s tickets will be the same as 2011/12 levels.

Chief Executive Ron Gourlay said: ‘It is the seventh time in nine seasons there has been a price freeze at Stamford Bridge for Premier League and European knockout-phase tickets in non-hospitality seating, and during that time there has been a reduction in prices for European group games.

‘Financial Fair Play continues to challenge clubs but everyone at Chelsea Football Club is working very hard to grow our business revenue worldwide.

‘Under Jose Mourinho’s management the squad will continue to evolve and it is our ambition to make the 2014/15 season an exciting one. Of course our fans play an important role in our challenge for major honours.’

Season-ticket renewal forms and the full ticket policies for next season will be available later this month.
