Everton subsidise Chelsea tickets

14/01/2015  Comments (14)  jump

Everton supporters travelling to Chelsea to cheer on the Blues next month will benefit from reduced-price tickets.

The Club have moved to subsidise 10 of the cost of an adult ticket and 5 of a concessionary ticket for the Premier League trip to Stamford Bridge as a way of thanking fans for their unwavering and loyal support on the road this season.

The fantastic backing Roberto Martinez's side have received this term was evident on Tuesday evening when almost 3,000 Blues followed the team to east London for the FA Cup third-round replay against West Ham United.
Everton CEO Robert Elstone said: The level of backing the team receives for away fixtures is a source of enormous pride for everybody associated with the Club.

That support was at its best at Upton Park. It makes a difference. It gets noticed. And we are delighted to be able to say thank you.

The Premier League match away at Chelsea takes place on Wednesday 11 February with a 7.45pm kick-off.

In total, Everton have received an allocation of 3,032 tickets, with seats now costing 45 for adults and 18.50 for concessions — rather than the face value price of 55 and 23.50.

Tickets for the Chelsea away fixture go on sale to 2014/15 Season Ticket holders with six-plus Premier League credits from the 2014/15 season on Monday 19 January at 8am.

Tickets can be purchased online by visiting evertonfc.com/eticketing, over the phone on 0871 663 1878* (option 2), or in person at the Park End box office.

For the full selling information, visit evertonfc.com.

Who on earth is going to pay these insane prices on a cold Wednesday night in February just to watch a total execution job??

Football really needs to take a long hard look at where it's going with ticket prices and realising that games like this where there is more than likely only one winner, it's pricing fans our of being arsed going.

Me Jim, for one, and I bet you what you like we could have sold double the allocation, the away crowd is a good laugh, good entertainment at times, and you know what, majority of those going will not think we will get trounced. EFC 4 EVER. The glass is half full.

I live in London folks and I've never been sat in the away stands. Could someone please pass on some pointers on how to grab a seat or two ? I really want to join our away support !!

Nigel,

I also live in London and have managed to get tickets at face value in the away end for loads of games in London over the past 4 years.
Just get yourself on the grandoldteam.com forum and find the Tickets page. All face value and there's always someone with some available. I was a little apprehensive at first dealing with complete strangers but I haven't had anyone let me down yet.

Jim Bennings.

You need to stop creating posts on TW and get to a game, especially an away game. Not only will you find that it's normal for Wednesday nights to be cold but you will also be amazed at what great away support this club has; for me, away games really are on another planet compared to games at Goodison.

You never know, you might not moan so much about the blues but actually see Everton football club in a totally different light.

Jim, it's called supporting your team.

Jim -

When I was in college I'd come home to my family's house in Wisconsin (moved there 2 days before my Sophomore year in High School).

The Green Bay Packers - NFL team Jim - played in the old County Stadium 3 games a year in Milwaukee.

I used to go watch those games when they were 4 wins and 12 losses with a guy named Mike Tomczak at quarterback (worst quarterback in NFL history argueably). They were dreadful. Absolute crap. It was usually 10 degrees outside (-12C) and snowing.

I had an absolute blast while freezing my privates off. Loved it.

Go to the game Jim. Enjoy yourself. Everton need support right now, not guys worrying about how cold it'll be, confident they're about to witness an "execution job".

Get stuck in Jim!

I think this is the EPL Away Fans Initiative that was launched last year. If memory serves me right, it's 𧶀k per club over 3 years, with the clubs to use as they see fit. Subsidising tickets is one, albeit easy, method of disbursement.

Stoke provided free coach travel to all away games – dunno if they repeated it this year, although it only benefits those who actually live in Stoke.

I can recall an awful night or two at London games years ago when we'd turn up in droves – and it wasn't just London / SE-based Blues – as testified by the rakes of coaches queued up outside Stamford Bridge after.
