Ticket prices remain the same at Chelsea
Like London rivals Arsenal, Chelsea have confirmed a freeze on all ticket prices for matches at Stamford Bridge next season.
ITV has covered the story, meaning that for the sixth time in eight seasons, the club will be making no increase on prices for European encounters and Premier League matches.
The Blues chief executive Ron Gourlay told the club’s official website: “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.”
The current Champions of Europe have said that each of the three main price categories at Stamford Bridge will not change for Premier League games, and the discounted ticket prices for non-hospitality seats at Capital One Cup and FA Cup matches will continue as it has this season.
Previous price freezes at the west Londoners occurred during the period 2006-2010. This means season tickets; hospitality lounges and individual purchases will remain the same as levels first introduced for the start of the 2011-12 campaign.
Arsenal recently came under fire for charging Manchester City away supporters £62 to come and watch their team play at the Emirates Stadium in January.
They confirmed a freeze on their ticket prices last month.
