Amongst the hospitality packages available is a ticket for The Dugout Club, priced at £1,780.
New for this season, The Dugout Club is billed as the “ultimate sporting experience” by the club.
By purchasing a ticket, fans will be able to sit in luxury padded seats behind the dugout as well as enjoying Club Chelsea hospitality before and after the match.
Whilst it is on sale to both home and away supporters, Blues fans are also give access to the player arrivals, pitchside access for the warmups and a signed Chelsea shirt.
Tickets in The Diamond Suite and Champions Club Box are also still on offer for £960 and £900, respectively.
Reacting to the prices, one fan tweeted: “Have to pay for those $100million backup wingers somehow.”
Another added: “Pays for one hair on the head of one of their recent signings.”
A third supporter also commented: “Won’t have much success selling those tickets if they can’t start performing on the pitch.”
Meanwhile, one more joked: “Bargain if you pay over eight years…”
Chelsea made 12 signings during the transfer window, spending just under £400million.
Their summer spree took the club’s transfer outlay under Todd Boehly to over £1billion.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have made a slow start to the season, though, winning just one of their first five Premier League matches.
Last weekend’s goalless draw at Bournemouth leaves Chelsea 14th in the table, already eight points adrift of the top four.
