Stamford Bridge is the most central of the London grounds and is easily accessible by tube or bus from the centre. Parking is available in surrounding streets. Also look for directions to Chelsea Village, which is the name for the stadium/hotel complex.

By Train

The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway (Zone 2) on the District Line. West Brompton is the nearest overground station.

By Car

Use the M25 to take you round to junction 15 and turn off onto the M4 towards London, follow the M4 which becomes the A4 up to Hammersmith. Stay on it over the Hammersmith flyover and for a further 1.5 miles before turning off for Earls Court. Go past Earls Court station and down the one way system until you hit Fulham Road, turn right at the traffic lights. Go staright on for 600 yards and the ground is on your right. Parking is difficult very close to the ground so you may want to look a bit further away



Thoughts:
Chelsea is quite possibly the worst ground for luck if you are a Red. Rarely see any form of a result in our favour there with just one win in our last 14 (and that was thanks to Bruno Cheryou). Stamford Bridge is also one of the most expensive grounds in the country. Tickets at around £45-50, and it seems as though the bevvies and food aren't much short of that, and you find that you are queuing for ages there! Very little leg room, and generally a poor pitch level view. All in all, stay the hell away!

From the 2005/06 season away fans are to be located in the South East corner of the Shed End, rather than the lower tier of the East Stand, where away fans have been accommodated for a number of previous seasons. The normal allocation for league games is 3,000 tickets, with fans located in a portion of the upper tier of the Shed End Stand and half of the lower tier. For cup games the whole of the Shed End can be allocated.

***Note*** Chelsea operate a non-smoking policy.



Below is the Shed End, where the away fans will now be located. The away fans are located on the left hand side of the stand as you look at the picture:

Pub guide and extras
The pubs nearest the ground are very partisan so we'd normally use the tube to drink elsewhere (e.g. Earls Court) before travelling in. There are however quite a few pubs on the Kings Road as long as you don't break into a chorus of "Poor Scouser Tommy". The Goat in Boots on Fulham Road has been recommended as somewhere you'll find a decent mix of Reds and Blues having a chat about the game. There's also The Slug and Lettuce next to Fulham Broadway tube station, and the White Horse Pub near Parsons Green Station which have been decent drinking dens in recent seasons.

Away Fans:
Shed Upper Tier: Adult £48, Over 65ís £20, Child (under 16) £20
Shed Lower Tier Adult £45, Over 65ís £20, Child (under 16) £20

Official Programme £3.

wattie:
Good ale house is The Courtyard, Earls Court.. Ive drank in here a few times now and its a cracking little boozer, always full of reds and really freindly austrailian bar staff who are always happy to wear Justice stickers and learn about the history of our famous club..


Only a ten min walk to the ground

AJ:
Before the game

All the pubs around the ground were prodominantly blue and didn't look too friendly so we took a walk away from the ground, found a pub 15 minutes away on the right called 'The Goat In Boots' or something along those lines. Was a sound pub, good combination of reds and blues in there having a chat about the game. £3 a pint was a bit of a downer but that can only be expected. Quite a lot of lads got turfed out for looking under 21 and it seemed to be the general rule in all of the pubs up that way.

During the game

The non-smoking rule isn't really something they enforce as far as I was aware. Plenty of people smoking in their seats and in the stand and nobody said anything. Any beer or food you want in there will cost you an arm or a leg. According to some fans I spoke to yesterday, the Chelsea fans in the upper tier were spitting down on us so watch out for that.

After the game

As you come out of the stand there's a line of police separating us and the Chelsea fans but as you get to the top of the small hill they disappear and the two sets of fans come together. This is a stupid thing to do but on the whole the police didn't care. If you want to avoid trouble I'd suggest you stay in the ground a bit after full time.

Hightown Phil:
Stay in for about half an hour then.

If you're on row 15 or 16, it is highly unlikely you will see anything if we're stood.

If you're with kids I'd suggest it.
