Over 500 local residents to attend first match at Stamford Bridge

From the official Chelsea FC website:

Chelsea Football Club and Chelsea Foundation have launched a new initiative, ensuring local residents and community members are able to attend their first match at Stamford Bridge.

Over 500 tickets will be made available through the My First Game initiative, which will make 30 tickets available at every match played at Stamford Bridge by the men’s and women’s team for the rest of the season.

he exclusive opportunity will be open to those who either live or attend school within a one-mile radius of the stadium, with tickets priced at £25 for adults and children attending for free.

The postcodes included in the My First Game initiative are:

  • SW6 Fulham Broadway, London (0 miles from Stamford Bridge)
  • SW6 Parsons Green and Walham, London (0.3 miles)
  • SW10 Sands End, London (0.4 miles)
  • SW6 Sands End, London (0.4 miles)
  • SW6 Town, London (0.4 miles)
  • SW6 North End, London (0.6 miles)
  • W14 North End, London (0.6 miles)
  • SW5 Redcliffe, London (0.6 miles)
  • SW10 Redcliffe, London (0.6 miles)
  • SW6 Munster, London (0.7 miles)
  • SW10 Cremorne, London (0.8 miles)
  • SW3 Cremorne, London (0.8 miles)
  • SW5 Earl’s Court, London (0.8 miles)

Lord Daniel Finkelstein, Chelsea FC director and chair of the Chelsea Foundation said, ‘We are delighted to announce the My First Game initiative, which will see over 500 local residents being offered the opportunity to attend their first-ever match at the prestigious home of Chelsea Football Club.

‘The scheme will potentially see over 250 children, who either live or attend school locally, attending their first match free of charge, helping to grow the next generation of match-going Chelsea fans.

‘Chelsea Football Club has a home in the heart of south-west London, yet many local residents and communities will never step foot inside the stadium. The My First Game initiative is designed to change that.’

To apply, residents are required to complete this form with their name and address and proof of that address. Providing they do not have a prior ticket purchase history with us, we will allocate tickets for an upcoming home match.

Once allocated, on the matchday, the residents will need to show proof of address to collect their tickets. They will only be able to attend one match via the My First Game initiative.

No Chelsea FC Membership is required. Chelsea FC’s Conditions of Issue, which can be found here, apply to all match tickets.

    Local residents will get to go for cheap prices . I’ve supported Chelsea since the 60s and live 225 miles from the ground now. 450 mile round trip . To go to a game I have to leave at 10 am for a midweek game . 6 am for a 3pm kick off . Even earlier for a midday kick off .So I now have to stay overnight. It costs me about £500 to go to a home game all in and I’ve never been rewarded for my loyalty yet people who live near the ground are getting cheap tickets. It’s morally wrong. Let’s see more rewards given to those who have spend £1000s they can’t afford to support the club over decades .
