Chelsea as an institution have been one of the best supporters to women’s football development in England for several years, and it is likely we will continue doing so for years to come. And it has been an worthy investment for many reasons beyond financial gain, as direct support via attendance to Chelsea Women matches went from an average of 1,587 to 4,264 fans between 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons — with the latter interrupted (and thus negatively affected) by the pandemic.
These numbers will be growing further as Chelsea Women were able to sell out their season tickets for the 2021-22 season for the first time in their history in a time frame of just over two weeks. Fans who purchased such tickets will be able to watch Chelsea Women home matches in domestic competitions, those being the Women’s Super League, the FA Cup and the League Cup. But if you missed the opportunity to buy a season ticket, worry not as regular tickets will still be made available for these matches at Kingsmeadow.
Manager Emma Hayes, who has been the leader of Chelsea Women’s success on the pitch since 2012, is looking forward to seeing fans back at Kingsmeadow helping push the Blues towards further glory this upcoming season.
“I’m delighted to hear we’ve sold more season tickets than ever before. We’ve missed our loyal fans tremendously, but we felt their support throughout the last season. I really can’t wait to see everyone back at Kingsmeadow later this summer, we’ve got plenty to celebrate!”
