Stamford Bridge has 2 very large screens within the stadium which play the match live and offer in game statistics and highlights. They also display some messages. If you want your own personal message of 15 words or less, email email@example.com at least 24 hours ahead of kickoff.
Every weekend match day, Chelsea runs coaching sessions for younger fans, delivered by an actual Chelsea FC coach. These sessions are an hour long and run 1hour45 minutes before kickoff. The price is a reasonable £5 which actually includes a match programme. These sessions are also open to those without a ticket for the game.
You can send your own music choices to Chelsea and hear them on the loudspeakers played before the game – simply make a playlist and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org – just make sure to send it 3 days before the kick off.
For young fans who are visiting for the first time or for their birthdays, Chelsea will celebrate this by wishing them a happy birthday and display a message on the big screen, as well as giving them a small gift for free! Email email@example.com around 2 weeks before the game as it is first come first served.
For those who are looking to drive to the stadium anyway and need to take the car you can avoid the congestion and get a guaranteed space nearby. Many residents will rent their residential space to you by the hour or day and it can help you to avoid the traffic and drastically reduces travelling costs for those going nationally or regionally into London. Just go online to somewhere like “Just Park” or “yourparkingspace.co.uk” and search for options near the stadium and choose a price that suits you. If you are willing to walk, the further away from the stadium, the cheaper it is, so the best value spots are around half a mile away which is about 15-20 minute walk.
If you’ve got time to plan, get there early for two reasons. One, you won’t have to spend an age getting to the stadium, swimming through the crowds. But two, you can head over to the Britannia Gate and see all the big-name players, and the manager, arriving on the bus! If you’re lucky, you might get an autograph (I did once!) but otherwise, you get to see and cheer on your favourite players as they make their way inside. Great experience!
