The six away games Chelsea fans can now buy tickets for following new update
Chelsea fans can start adding more travel dates to their diary after it was announced away tickets would be available to them again.
After the UK government sanctioned Roman Abramovich, the majority of the club’s financial revenue streams were cut off from their owner.
Ticket sales previously took up a portion of Abramovich’s income, but with the Blues frozen from him entirely, such an asset was banned.
Last week, Chelsea supporters were told they could not make the trip to North Yorkshire for the FA Cup fixture against Middlesbrough unless tickets had been purchased in advance.
Some feared this would continue throughout the season, with several key matches still to play.
However, the government confirmed yesterday that they had altered the special licence offered out following Abramovich’s punishment, meaning tickets for away matches could be bought.
The proceeds will go straight to the Premier League, rather than the retreating Russian.
Here are fixtures on the road Chelsea supporters can attend:
Southampton – 09/04/22
Thomas Tuchel’s men face a tricky test at Saint Mary’s next month.
Ralph Hasenhuttl was born into the same German football school as his compatriot, meaning Southampton play with similar aggression to the European champions.
Real Madrid – 12/04/22
Part two of the Champions League clash between last year’s semi-finalists.
This time, Chelsea challenge Real Madrid in the quarter-final second leg, having already contested the reverse tie at Stamford Bridge six days earlier.
Crystal Palace – 16/04/22
An FA Cup semi-final at Wembley awaits the Blues and Crystal Palace.
Tuchel’s men saw off Middlesbrough in the last round, whilst the Eagles soar past Everton rather easily.
All of the profits from ticket sales will go via the Premier League to the FA.
Leeds United – TBC
A clash neither set of supporters wants to miss.
Chelsea followers haven’t been able to visit Elland Road much recently, but can start looking for seats now.
This encounter with Leeds United was meant for the 17th of April, but because the Blues are still in the FA Cup, the date will be pushed back.
Everton – 1/05/22
The reunion with Frank Lampard at Goodison Park. Enough said.
Manchester United – 15/05/22
Historically, at this stage in the campaign, these two sides would be battling out for the title.
It’s more likely they will be jostling for a top-four spot, yet the contest should be tasty nonetheless.
