We’re coming to the end of a pretty bleak season for Chelsea fans, but things are looking brighter. The sun is shining, we’ve just won 6-0, and we’ve got an FA Cup semi final to look forward to this weekend. You might even want to go and see the game in person, enjoying a (potentially) sunny day out at the national stadium.

What better live game to reward yourself with after a tough season of bad results, than a mouth watering clash at Wembley? Man City have a lot on their plate right now, while Chelsea seem to be rounding into form and are unbeaten since February. If you were ever going to treat yourself with a trip to Wembley, now is the time to do it.

Chelsea vs. Man City tickets – how to buy

It’s always going to tough to get tickets to a cup semi, especially one involving two such big teams.

Of course there will be plenty of gags about Man City having no fans – and given the sheer number of trips they’ve made to Wembley over the last few years, even their most loyal supporters would be forgiven a little final fatigue. But they will fill their end, and getting tickets won’t necessarily be easy without the right plan.

Famously the FA like to give away a huge chunk of available seats to their corporate sponsors and various movers and shakers, meaning even Wembley’s impressive capacity ends up being slashed by quite a lot. Long term, if you want to make this a regular thing, you’ll want to sign up and get a proper official Chelsea membership from the club here, giving you access to tickets before general release.

Even better than that is becoming a season ticket holder. They get the first chance to buy everything – but that’s a big commitment of time and money. Even lots of very loyal Blues don’t go that far.

One thing we can say for sure is that getting tickets from touts is always a bad idea, and you don’t want to make all the travel arrangements of getting to the stadium unless you’re guaranteed a place anyway. Your best bet is to use a resale site like Live Football Tickets to ensure you’re sorted before you start looking up train timetables and hotel prices. They’re a great platform for supporters, and they offer a 150% guarantee to anyone using their service.

Ticket prices

With just a few days to go until the game, there are still more than 2000 tickets left – but they will go fast. Some are as cheap as £80 in the Chelsea end – but there’s a full range of tickets up to “Club Level VIP” which will come in at close to £1000. So choose your own adventure – if you’re there for the atmosphere, get stuck in behind the goal in the Chelsea end and hope to see a great game.
