Chelsea have announced they will freeze the price of every ticket at Stamford Bridge for the 2017/18 campaign.

The club confirmed on Monday that all season tickets and individual match tickets, including hospitality packages, will remain the same price next term.

The price freeze means that Chelsea fans who sit in the regular home areas at Stamford Bridge will pay the same as they did in the 2011/12 campaign - meaning that prices have not changed in 10 of the last 12 years.

The price freeze will also apply to tickets sold via general sale.

Chelsea also confirmed that concessionary rates for match tickets, including season tickets, for the over-65s and under-20s will remain the same price while the maximum £30 ticket cost for away games will apply next term.

Speaking about the move to keep ticket prices the same for next season, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck said: "These are exciting times at Chelsea and the support Antonio and the team receive is tremendous.

"We keep our pricing structure and ticket policies under constant review and the cost of match tickets is one of the subjects the club discusses most frequently with our supporters.

"Fans going to away games next season will again be supported by our travel subsidies and the Premier League’s visiting ticket price cap will help keep costs down.

"This season, your support has helped lift us to the top of the league and into the semi-finals of the FA Cup and we really appreciate your backing, home and away.

"We have ambitions to achieve more success next season and beyond and our fans will be vital to this. I am therefore pleased we have been able to freeze all our ticket prices for 2017/18."
