Chelsea Supporters Trust (CST)
The Chelsea Supporters Trust is a non-profit, independent organization that represents Chelsea supporters' interests all over the world. The CST works with the club, other clubs' trusts and footballing authorities in the U.K. to guide, advocate and change policy with the interests of supporters as the number one priority.
Key issues include ticket availability and pricing, travel, atmosphere and safe standing initiatives, and work related to the possible relocation of Chelsea FC while the Stamford Bridge is torn down and rebuilt.
All supporters are encouraged to register, though it costs 5 pounds annually to register as a voting member.
Chelsea in America (CIA)
Chelsea in America is a national umbrella organization comprised of 5 Official Supporters Groups across America. Members enjoy assistance with ticketing to matches, special merchandise and discounts, and annual events like the Summer Tour and Annual Conclave, which frequently includes former players. CIA also advocates for supporters on issues like ticket availability and pricing.
Chelsea Pitch Owners (CPO)
Chelsea Pitch Owners is a non-profit organization that owns the freehold to Stamford Bridge, as well as the naming rights to Chelsea Football Club Ltd. The CPO ensures that Chelsea FC will always call Stamford Bridge its home, and licenses the name back to club and the use of Stamford Bridge at a peppercorn rent.
The organization is wholly unique in the U.K. in that no other club do supporters control the name and future as we do. CPO members hold an annual vote to elect board members which work with Chelsea FC representatives on issues related to the club and the future of Stamford Bridge, most notably the planned stadium redevelopment within the next few years.
Supporters can purchase shares in the club to pay down the debt and hold voting rights to protect Chelsea's future, as well as to receive a commemorative share certificate noting the ownership.
