Key information is highlighted below, bur for the full visiting supporters guide please click HERE. For Chelsea's access statement, please click HERE.

The recommended entrance to the site is via Stamford Gate which is nearest to the away supporters’ turnstiles.


The nearest visiting supporters’ pubs are to the north-east of Stamford Bridge at Earls Court, and are a 25 to 30-minute walk from the Stadium.

  • Earls Court Tavern - 123 Earls Court Road, Kensington, London SW5 9RL
  • Prince of Teck - 161 Earls Court Road, Kensington, London SW5 9RQ
  • The Courtfield Tavern - 187 Court Road, Kensington, London SW5 9AN


The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway on the District Line, which is a few minutes’ walk from Stamford Bridge.

As parking on a matchday is very limited the best way to travel to Stamford Bridge is by public transport.


Chelsea FC operate the following queuing procedure (see below) to co-ordinate and moderate the flow of supporters to the turnstiles in order to ensure a safe entry into the Stadium. 

On arrival at the queuing system the following processes will occur:

  • Pre-entry ticket checks
  • Body and bag search
  • Electronic ticket scan
  • Entry through turnstile

It is requested supporters avoid bringing bags where possible as enhanced searches will be taking place.

During these procedures it may be necessary to temporarily hold supporters at cordon points in order to achieve a safe and steady flow through to the turnstiles


Turnstiles will be open 2 hours (90 minutes for midweek fixtures) before kick-off and it is advised supporters be in their seats no later than 30 minutes before kick-off.

Please note that large numbers of Supporters arriving late cannot have an expectation of making it into the Stadium before kick-off.


Please note that our pre-match activation “Countdown To Kick Off” may include a light show and special effects.
