Going To Chelsea

The ground has been transformed beyond belief over the years, but I cannot ever remember a stadium taking so long to rebuild. They were working on it back in 1991 when we went there in the League Cup, and work is still being done!
Away fans are located in the lower tier of the East Stand, where up to 3,000 fans can be accommodated. If the visiting club declines the 3,000, they are given 1,500. For cup games the allocation can rise to 5,200, by also putting fans in the lower tier of the Matthew Harding Stand. The view from seats at the back is nothing short of ridiculous, considering the high price of tickets. One of the worst views in the Premiership.

You can take your chance in the many pubs around the ground, but it is always best to remember where you are are respect the fact this can be a dodgy place. There are many bars on the Kings Road and the Slug and Lettuce is OK outside of Fulham Broadway train station. Also the White Horse pub near Parsons Green Station is good, too.

Leave the M25 at junction 15 and take the M4 towards London, which then becomes the A4 up to Hammersmith. Carry on over the Hammersmith flyover and after a further one and half miles, take the turning towards Earls Court. Continue past Earls Court station anddown the one-way system until you reach the junction with Fulham Road. At this junction, turn right at the traffic lights and after about half a mile, you will see the ground on your right.

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.
