Chelsea Introduces New £300-a-Ticket Hospitality Package Despite Complaints from Stamford Bridge Fans about Unruly Behavior and Former King of Spain’s Involvement

A new Chelsea hospitality package worth upwards of £280 per head has sparked fears of antisocial behaviour – and the former King of Spain is embroiled in the outcry.

The Rose & Ball package is part of Club Chelsea’s hospitality offerings for regular fans and will allow fans a ‘first-class experience’ of dining and soaking up the action, with a former player coming along to say hello. 

Residents around Stamford Bridge wrote a letter in 2023 objecting to the Rose & Ball because of issues they feel VIP matchgoers already cause. 

One of the grievances was that they use their streets as car parks – with Spain’s former King Juan Carlos among the reported vehicular rogues.

‘Drug taking is very visible, drunken behaviour, urination and even defecation is often seen,’ said one resident, objecting to Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

Stamford Bridge locals are up in arms about a new hospitality package as they think it will cause more parking issues and antisocial behaviour 

The Rose & Ball hospitality package will have prices ranging from £280 to £675 for VIPs

‘Again, think of the health issues. Just consider the implications for the elderly and families.

‘One example, the King of Spain attended an event and these vehicles blocked access to our road for a lengthy period of time, engines running, fumes being emitted.’

Another added: ‘For a recent match we had the King of Spain’s entourage’s vehicles hovering in front of our house for two hours. 

‘All the roads around here become a double parking waiting lot for VIPs, their drivers, and their vehicles. This is a crime and causes disorder as most of these cars are illegally parked.’ 

Disgraced former king Juan Carlos watched Real Madrid beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League last season before jetting off to Vigo.  

The Rose & Ball experience will be spread across in the ‘health club’ outside Stamford Bridge as well as a currently unused space.

The cheapest ticket will weigh in at £280, rising to £675 for the highest category, and it has been advertised as a ‘lower-mid tier’ offering. 

Elsewhere at Stamford Bridge, VIP attendees shell out upwards of £9,600 for Private Club boxes.
