Chelsea subsidise Champions League semifinal tickets

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Champions League away days don't come cheap, especially when you get to the semifinals. Travelling supporters hoping to see the first leg of Chelsea's clash with Thibaut Courtois (maybe) and Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon next Tuesday were looking at shelling out at least £58 for a ticket in addition to travelling expenses -- not trivial, in other words. But I say 'were' because the club has stepped in, offering to subsidise all non-hospitality tickets by £20.

The Blues have been allocated more than 3,000 tickets, which brings the expenses for the club to something like £60k. That's not a lot of money to Chelsea, but it's a decent chunk of change to everyone who isn't, andI'm sure everyone will appreciate the gesture. If you take advantage of the club's generosity, make sure to sing your hearts out in Madrid. Not that the away support, which is always fantastic, needs any reminding...
