Friday, December 1st

  • Arrive in London Friday morning after an overnight flight (we recommend flying into Heathrow because Gatwick will add about an hour ride costing around $130).

NOTE: the airport is a great place to get a SIM card for your cell phone so you can use data while in the U.K. We all picked up unlimited plans for about $50 last year so we could communicate with people on the trip and loved ones/friends back home.

  • Meet your private driver in the Arrivals terminal to be taken to the hotel at Stamford Bridge.
  • Check in at the premium 4-star Millennium & Copthorne Hotels At Chelsea Football Club.
  • Relax, shrug off the jet lag before joining us for a meetup at a Chelsea pub! We’ll be hanging out with journalists, podcasters, and other local fans.

Saturday, December 2nd PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH DAY!!!

  • Start off your morning with a hearty English breakfast in the hotel.
  • Take in the match day festivities outside of Stamford Bridge with all the other fans.
  • Kickoff is at 3 pm local time – you can get in the stadium early to watch warm ups and take photos while before it’s too busy if you’d like.
  • After the match we’ll continue to take in the match day atmosphere if you’d like otherwise the rest of the day is free for you to enjoy.

 

Sunday, December 3rd

  • Relax and enjoy your traditional English breakfast while reading the English newspapers and the reviews of yesterday’s game.
  • You’re invited to a special VIP live recording of the London Is Blue Podcast from inside Stamford Bridge overlooking the pitch!
