Stamford Bridge is the home of Chelsea Football Club and is situated in the heart of affluent South West London, making it a perfect location if you wish to catch Chelsea FC tickets for a match in the capital.
The ground has a capacity of over 40,000 and there is an unmistakable atmosphere generated at the bridge because of the fact that the stands at the ground are in very close proximity to the pitch. In many ways, Stamford Bridge is reminiscent of the way football used to be and offers a chance to see the world’s best footballers in a reasonably intimate venue with Chelsea tickets from Football Ticket Pad.
Their stadium is one of the oldest football grounds in England and has been their home ever since the club was founded in 1905, making Chelsea FC tickets a real treat for any Blues fan visiting London.
Stamford Bridge Seating
Matthew Harding Stand / North Stand: This is a two tiered stand located behind the goal in the North End of the Stamford Bridge. This is where the majority of Chelsea season ticket holders are seated and where Chelsea season/members cards are hosted.
The Matthew Harding Stand was named after the former club director whose investment transformed the club in the early 1900’s. This is one of the most lively areas in the stadium to sit, especially in the lower tier. Fans can but both Shortside Upper and Shortside Lower tickets for this section of the ground. The club museum and Chelsea Health Club and Spa can be found adjacent to the stand.
East Stand: This is the Main Stand at Stamford Bridge and is made up of three tiers. The players tunnel, dugout and Press Box are all housed in this part of the stadium with the middle tier providing Executive Boxes and Club Suites for Chelsea ticket holders. A family section can also be found in the lower tier of the East Stand.
When the stand was built in 1905 it was the only stand that was built with a roof. The East Stand was then demolished and rebuilt in 1973 where it now holds around 11,000 Chelsea supporters.
Shed End / South Stand: This is the smallest stand in the stadium holding little over 6,000 fans. Despite its size it is one of the loudest parts of the stadium and houses around 3,000 fans in the away section in the corner towards the East Stand. Shortside Upper tickets are widely regarded as some of the best seats in Stamford Bridge in terms of both noise and view.
West Stand: This is the largest and most recent stand at Stamford Bridge after it was fully refurbished in 2001 to hold over 13,000 fans over three tiers. The middle tier of the West Stand is designated entirely to Executive Boxes, known as the Millennium Suites - all of which are named after former Chelsea players. There are six suites in this stand which also include the Clarke Suite, Drakes and Tambling Suite.
On matchday, ticket holders can visit the Peter Osgood statue outside the East Stand in memory of the former striker who was known as ‘The King of Stamford Bridge.’

Chelsea FC: Last Season
It was a turbulent season at Stamford Bridge as they finished in a disappointing 10th place in their title defending season in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho was sacked for a second time by Roman Abramovich in December 2015 after a disastrous start to the season which left Chelsea in 16th place - seven months after leading them to the league title. Guus Hiddink then steadied the ship somewhat in his second stint as Chelsea interim boss. The Dutchman went fifteen matches unbeaten when he took over, eight of which were draws.
Back-to-back defeats to Swansea City and Manchester City ultimately ended Chelsea’s slim hopes of a European spot in April. However, Chelsea did have the final say in the title race as they denied rivals Tottenham Hotspur the chance to catch Leicester City at the top in the penultimate match of the season.
Big name stars like Diego Costa and Eden Hazard had seasons to forget, however, the performances of Willian was the only real shining light for The Blues in what was a miserable campaign for the former Premier League champions.
