Chelsea to subsidise travelling supporters

Chelsea to subsidise traveling supporters

After the public relations disaster that was the end of 2012, Chelsea have been taking steps to make up for their missteps with the supporters. Frank Lampard was re-signed. Jose Mourinho was brought back. And now this, which in financial terms is probably the nicest gesture of all: Subsidised away travel.

Specifically, Chelsea are going to help the supporters out when they have to travel long distances for Premier League games. In the announcement on the official site, four games have been singled out, all involving lengthy trips -- Everton, Manchester United, Newcastle and Sunderland. As to why the Manchester City and Liverpool away games haven't been mentioned, I'm not quite sure, but both are in the second half of the season and just might not have been announced yet.

No matter what, this is a good gesture. Travelling supporters are a big part of the club, and with the expense involved in following a football team around, I'm sure that every little bit helps. I haven't heard of other English teams doing this, so good for Chelsea for showing some appreciation and lending a hand to their most dedicated supporters.

I m sure this would really help all our travelling supporters, a nice gesture from the club.

All in the name of good publicity.

We're the most hated club in the country and we're trying to act all nice.

Hated by all and loved by the Blues fan.

This can only generate more hate in them and love in us :)

Good to be nice :P

Well once again sky and bt screwed us up with Man Utd on a Monday night, Everton 5.30 with the last train back to London leaving around 20 mins after final whistle and Newcastle lunchtime kick off. Sunderland is also scheduled for a Tuesday night so this will be good news for many, probably be coaches though which aren't much fun..

some of those games are gonna be harder work than away days in Europe.

I hate going to Sunderland at the best of times..it's basically Rotterdam on a bad day,everyday.without the weed and sauce.the worst city to ever have a team in the top flight along with Bradford imo..only bright spot,we don't have to go to Roker park anymore.
