The Fans' Forum is a supporter's consultative forum that began in 2004. The forum comprises elected fans and senior members of the club. It meets four times a season to discuss and debate club matters.

According to the Official Chelsea site: [1]

The aims of the Forum are as follows:-
  • To establish a dialogue between the club and fans
  • To develop a better understanding of issues that affect supporters
  • An opportunity for the club to discuss new ideas

The end goals of the Forum are:-

  • Ensuring that supporters - whether on the Forum or not - feel valued in their loyalty to the club
  • To increase the supporter base
  • To provide supporters - as far as reasonably possible - with the facilities and conditions that they expect from Chelsea Football Club.
  • To help develop a business structure that underpins a successful football team

Structure of the Forum To reflect the diverse nature of Chelsea's support, representatives will be drawn from a variety of supporters: season ticket holders, club members, private box and executive suite members, family stand season ticket holders, branches, over 60 year old fans, 16-21 year old fans, disabled fans and representatives of supporter clubs.

We fully realise that many fans may overlap between categories, but we feel it is important to aim for a wide range of representation. The above, of course, in no way prevents someone over-60, 16-21, or disabled/blind from standing for, or being selected from, another category for which they qualify instead.

Chelsea appointed the Electoral Reform Services (ERS), an independent balloting organisation, to administer the original selection process.
