Chelsea to charge supporters to watch pre-season live

Chelsea are set to charge their own fans to watch the seven pre-season fixtures that the Blues have lined up.

After confirming the finalised schedule earlier this week, the Blues will travel to five countries playing seven friendlies.

Following the end of ChelseaTV, the club confirmed they will be putting all pre-season games onto their new app the 5th Stand, but have now stated they will be charging fans.

As per the Official Chelsea Website, it states: "All of our pre-season games will be streamed live on the 5th Stand app and, with full details and pricing for each game to be announced soon."

We will have to wait and see what those prices are for a little longer. Let's hope it isn't much. We are fans, not customers.
