Chelsea will subsidise costs for supporters travelling to a select number of Premier League matches next season.

Blues fans looking to attend the games at Manchester United (August 26), Everton (September 14), Newcastle (November 2) and Sunderland (December 4) will benefit from the cut-price travel options, the club announced on their official website.

The move follows the ethos adopted by many German clubs in recent years and is designed to reward the travelling supporters, who often spend large chunks of their income following their team over the course of a season.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea have been heavily criticised for their high ticket prices in recent years, with season ticket fees at the three top London clubs generally the highest in the Premier League.
