A few days ago, the British government announced sanctions against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, which greatly affected all aspects of Chelsea’s business. According to the British media “Daily Mail” reported that the famous sports brand Nike may terminate the sponsorship contract with Chelsea, the Blues will lose 540 million pounds in revenue.
“Daily Mail” said that after being sanctioned by the British government, Abramovich had two options: the first was to agree to the British government’s request and hand over the club to the British government, and the second was to wait for Chelsea to go bankrupt. Since Abramovich has previously decided to sell Chelsea, if Abramovich agrees to let the British government take over, Chelsea can still be sold normally, provided that Abramovich cannot benefit from the Chelsea sale plan.
With the implementation of the sanctions, Chelsea’s financial revenue has been seriously affected. Previously, Chelsea’s shirt chest advertising sponsor, the British telecom operator Three (3), has announced that it will stop sponsoring the Blues. According to reports, Chelsea’s shirt sponsor Nike is also considering terminating the contract with Chelsea. The two sides signed a three-year sponsorship contract worth 900 million pounds in 2016. If the contract is terminated early, Chelsea will lose 5.4% billion pounds in revenue.Return to Sohu, see more
