Stamford Bridge is a cashless stadium. All payments at the stadium will be contactless and cash will not be accepted.
A full range of refreshments are available from the concourse kiosks, and these are card payment only.
No bags larger than A4 will be permitted into the stadium. This equates to 30cm x 20cm x 10cm, approximately the size of a standard handbag. It is requested supporters avoid bringing bags where possible as enhanced searches may be taking place. This will improve security and reduce congestion during your entry into the stadium.
Please note that due to a lack of space, baggage deposit facilities will not be available, so you are strongly advised not to take any large bags to Stamford Bridge.
There is a limited amount of space to display banners and flags within the stadium and Chelsea advise they must be no larger than 80cm in depth and 250cm in width. Banners and flags must not obstruct the view of others, cover advertising signs or cause a safety hazard. Banners and flags must not display any abusive or threatening words, images, political statements or be deemed unacceptable.

Stamford Bridge has an accessible drop-off and pick-up point, situated by the main entrance to Stamford Gate. These facilities are steward-controlled on matchdays. Please note, on matchday, Fulham Road is closed to traffic. This can be up to two and a half hours prior to the match and is closed again following half-time. The road can also remain closed for up to two hours after a match. Please also note, on some occasions the road can remain closed for the duration of the match.

Please be advised to check all chosen travel routes prior to travelling due to any unforeseen circumstances which may affect your travel plans.
