When do Chelsea Women play at Stamford Bridge?

Chelsea Women's first match at Stamford Bridge came in November 2022, when The Blues hosted London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea won this encounter 3-0 thanks to goals from Sam Kerr, Erin Cuthbert and Guro Reiten in front of 28,350 spectators.

Chelsea only had to wait one more month before they were back at the Bridge, and this time they hosted French club PSG in the Champions League group stages in front of just over 10,000 fans.

Stamford Bridge has since regularly hosted Chelsea Women's Champions League ties, and has hosted no less than four of the WSL home games.

Chelsea have accumulated a total attendance of over 100,000 spectators for their matches at Stamford Bridge in the 2023/24 campaign.

What is Chelsea Women's record attendance?

Attendances at Women's matches have skyrocketed in recent years, mostly due to the success of the England Women's team  and the fact that some people prefer the more laid-back atmosphere at WSL games.

The highest attendance achieved by Chelsea was 4,670 at Kingsmeadow which was set on 28th April 2019 in a Champions League semi-final against Lyon. The Blues' attendance record at Stamford Bridge is 38,350 which came in Chelsea Women's first ever match at Stamford Bridge against Tottenham Hotspur.

Attendance records at women's football matches in England, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Germany and Chile have all been beaten in the last five years.

Chelsea were the visitors when 59,042 people turned up at the Emirates Stadium to see  Arsenal Women face Emma Hayes' side, and this remains the second-highest ever WSL attendance.

How to watch Chelsea Women on TV in the UK?

Sky Sports recently announced that they will be broadcasting 44 live WSL games from the 2024-2025 season.

There are a total of 264 Women's Super League matches to be played across the season, which means around 17% of those will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The BBC have also agreed a deal with the WSL to broadcast twenty-two matches from next season.

Alternatively, if you go to The FA's TV player website, you will be able to see your team play every single week of the season. This option is a long-running deal from the FA in a bid to increase the visibility of the women's game.
