Club to Host Say No To Antisemitism Event

 
As part of the Chelsea Football Club’s ongoing Say No To Antisemitism campaign, the Club is hosting a Holocaust survivor at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 27th March to meet supporters’ groups. The Club is delighted that Mala Tribich MBE has agreed to share her experiences, followed by a question and answer session.
 
The event will be held in the Champions Club from 6pm to 8pm and the Club would like to invite members of fan groups to the event. Food and a drink will be provided.
 
If you would like to attend, please email enquiries@chelseasupporterstrust.com with all requests for tickets no later than Thursday 22nd March at 5pm. Please include the name of any guests you are bringing as well as any dietary or accessibility requirements. Those who are allocated tickets will be contacted by representatives from the Club.

Using Twitter to help supporters get home from away games

The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust is appreciative of the fact that Chelsea FC has for some time subsidised travel for those supporters based in the South East who attend away games. However we are also aware that many supporters still have significant journeys home when club transport arrives back in the south east, whether this be at the main train stations or for coaches at Stamford Bridge. This can lead to expensive journeys home for many supporters, particularly when returning from evening fixtures where access to public transport is limited.

CST would like to help to facilitate contact between supporters who would be interested in connecting with others in the same situation through social media. Therefore we suggest that supporters who wish to share cost of travel back, or offer / receive lifts, use the following Twitter hashtags to connect:

Those on the club train:  #cfctrain then add their preferred destination

Those travelling on club coaches:  #cfccoach then add coach number and preferred destination

For example someone on the club train looking to share transport towards Sutton after the Sunderland game could use Tweet #cfctrain Sutton. People travelling towards nearby locations can then connect via the Direct Message feature to arrange to meet up. Please note it is necessary for both people to follow each other on Twitter to be able to DM each other.

Hopefully use of these hashtags will help facilitate communication and will make supporters journeys home from the point club transport ends less costly and inconvenient.

 

This is a new idea, with thanks to CST board member Chris Rayburn. Tell us what you think, and how the initiative might be improved and developed.
