For 18 Premier League clubs, the new season is just three weeks away, but for Chelsea the 2018-19 campaign kicks off a week earlier as they face champions Manchester City as Emirates FA Cup winners in the 2018 FA Community Shield match at Wembley Stadium.
Former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has replaced another controversial Italian, Antonio Conte in the dugout this summer and has already completed one piece of business by bringing talented midfielder Jorginho with him from Naples.
Sarri and Co. have pre-season preparations to think about, and their first friendly of the summer is just around the corner with Perth Glory the opponents on Monday before Inter Milan and Arsenal in the International Champions Cup.
With the exciting league campaign ahead, where The Blues will be looking for great improvements on last term in which they missed out on Champions League qualification by finishing fifth, supporters will have already bought their True Blue Memberships, renewed their season tickets and bought their Chelsea football tickets.
Don’t let the cost of season tickets at Stamford Bridge put you off buying football tickets at the club – you’ll have to cough up between £750 and £1250 – and use either the club or secondary ticketing websites to secure single match tickets which are priced from £47 to £87.
Fans are allowed to request a refund for their Chelsea football tickets as long as they contact the club no less than 48 hours before the day of the match.
If you come across a problem which means you can’t attend the home match you’ve bought football tickets for within two days of the scheduled kick-off, you won’t be eligible for a refund and will either have to pass the tickets onto fans within the same age group as you or simply lose your money.
The process for away football tickets is a little more complex. In order to gain a refund on Chelsea tickets for matches on the road you need to send off a letter with your tickets and details of how they were bought inside the envelope, making sure it’d arrive at Chelsea Football Club no less than 48 hours before the matchday.
The address to use if you’re either sending a request for a home ticket refund or sending your away tickets for a refund is: Chelsea Football Club, Fulham Road, London, SW6 1HS.
An alternative if you can’t get a refund for your Chelsea football tickets is to use the club’s Ticket Exchange. It was created to give supporters a safe and secure way to sell their seats to other fans who haven’t been able to get hold of a ticket.
The only downside is that the tickets have to be made available six weeks in advance, meaning it’s rather unlikely you’d be wanting a refund at that time.
Obviously, the best thing to do would be the make sure you’re definitely available to attend matches before buying football tickets, but hopefully this article helps if you ever find yourself in a difficult situation in regards to refunds at Chelsea.
