Chelsea: Key Info

22 August 2012

A quick round up of what you need to know ahead of our clash at Stamford Bridge.

Team News

Chelsea: Ramires could feature after recovering from illness, though Marko Marin is sidelined with a hamstring injury.
  
Reading: Roberts suspended, Kebe will miss out through a hamstring problem. No new injury doubts.

Travel

By Car: The most simple way to get to Stamford Bridge by car is to get on the M4 towards London, continue onto Great West Rd/A4 and then turn right onto North End Rd/B317. Further information can be found here.

Parking: Car-parking is very limited around Stamford Bridge. A number of local resident schemes are in operation in the surrounding areas of the stadium, which may mean parking some way from the ground itself. It is advisable to park on the outskirts of London and reach Stamford Bridge via the tube service.

By Train: The nearest tube station is Fulham Broadway which is on the District Line. Take a tube to Earls Court and if necessary, change for a Wimbledon bound tube. The nearest over ground train station is West Brompton, which is served by trains from Clapham Junction (which is in turn served by trains from London Waterloo and Victoria stations). 

It is around a 15 minute walk to the ground from West Brompton station. As you come out of the station turn right and proceed along Old Brompton Road, passing the Tournament Pub on your left. You will soon see the Brompton Cemetery immediately on your right and further along set back from the road is its impressive looking entrance. Turn right through the entrance into the cemetery (there are normally a number of other supporters doing the same) and as you walk on through the cemetery you will soon see the tops of the stands of Stamford Bridge.  If it is a night game then do not go into the cemetery, but take the next right after the cemetery into Finborough Road. After a half-mile, turn right onto the Fulham Road and the stadium is located down on the right. 
Tickets: Tickets for tonight’s game are no longer on sale.
