Loyalty Points Survey Results

Chelsea Supporters Trust Loyalty Points Survey Results

Following the first SGM of the season held on Sunday December 1st after the Southampton home game, the Chelsea Supporters Trust is pleased to present the initial results of our Loyalty Point survey, conducted last month.

The Trust would like to thank the 470+ members who took part in the survey. A full analysis in conjunction with our Premier League ticketing benchmarking report will be produced in the new year.

You can find the initial Loyalty Point survey results summary here.

In line with other motions passed at August's AGM, there were also reports presented at the SGM on Viagogo and Secondary Ticket Agencies and Safe Standing, which can be found here and here, respectively.

The SGM was well attended and we would like to thank all attendees for a productive meeting. The minutes and podcast of the meeting can be found here. In future, as per Trust policy, we hope to broadcast meetings live to our members online.

Christmas Party Update - The Final Countdown!

Christmas Party Update - The Final Countdown!

After a hectic few weeks of planning, preparation, and ticket sales, we’ve hit the final countdown to SW6’s biggest party night. Yes, the Chelsea Supporters Trust Christmas Party 2013, being held at The Black Bull, Fulham Road, on Friday 13th December, is now just a week away!

And if you haven’t already blagged your place, don't worry. A very limited number of tickets are left (priced at £5 for members and £10 for non-members, including Trust membership for one year) and can be reserved on a first-come-first served basis to collect on the night from The deadline to reserve any remaining tickets is 9pm Thursday 12th December.

As we speak, the Trust Board are dusting off their party frocks (and that’s just the boys) so here’s a reminder of the timetable for the big night:

7.00pm – doors open; mulled wine will be available to help kick-start the festive mood

7.30pm – food served; amongst the delights on offer will be pigs in blankets, chicken satay, meatballs, platters, breads, and cheeseboard.

There’ll be music and dancing (Theresa is adamant about this) till midnight with guest DJs on hand, and don’t forget that Mark Worrall will be signing copies of "Making History Not Reliving It - A Decade of Roman's Rule at Chelsea", co-authored with Kelvin Barker and David Johnstone, which you can buy at a special price of just £10 (subject to availability). More info on the book can be found here.

There could even be the odd surprise during the course of the night.  

And just in case you can’t face the journey home afterwards, a number of local hotels have rooms available at the time of writing; 

La Reserve, Fulham Road (probably the best value in terms of cost and proximity)

Millennium & Copthorne Hotel at Chelsea 

Jury’s Inn Chelsea

It's going to be a Blue Christmas!
