Chelsea season ticket to cost nearly £4,000 after stadium upgrades as fans fume

Chelsea fans are fuming as the price of a Blues season ticket is set to skyrocket after the club upgraded the facilities in one of the stands at Stamford Bridge.

The upper tier of the West Stand has been rebranded recently.

Westview, as it's now been rebranded too, has a new bar, food outlets and TV screens with comfy padded seats.

Currently, a season ticket in the stand will cost a handy £1,250, but those prices are set to rocket to £3,900 per seat for a tier-one ticket on and around the halfway line.

Placing Chelsea's season tickets as the most expensive in the Premier League.

Currently, Arsenal and Tottenham hold the not-so-coveted title as having the most expensive season tickets in England's top flight.

The top-priced adult season ticket at Spurs’ new ground costs £2,223, with Arsenal running a close second £2,013.

Manchester City are a distant third on £1,410, with West Ham and Southampton following closely behind.

However, Chelsea's new prices will see them fly up to the top of the table by more than £1,500.

"That can't be right surely there's a typo in the email. How can they justify that," one fan fumed on social media.

Another added: "I'm about done with football mate. The world is on its arse and football just continues without a care in the world.

"100million for Grealish has just about done it and now this for a season ticket from a billionaire."

"This will start with the elite clubs and filter its way down to the fodder. Bayern by contrast choose not to fleece their fans," a third tweeted.
