Earlier, the British government announced a comprehensive freeze on the assets of seven Russian billionaires in the UK, including Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, and the sale of Chelsea had to be postponed. Industry insiders then conducted an in-depth analysis of the dilemma that Chelsea will face due to the freezing of Abramovich’s assets in the UK. “Daily Mail” reporter Rob – Draper (Rob Draper) said that Chelsea may be deducted nine league points. In addition, Chelsea player transfers and contract renewals have to be suspended.
Rob Draper said on his personal social account: “In the next few hours, a lot of things about Chelsea have to be digested. Sanctions will be reviewed in May, if Chelsea is over by the end of this. Managed by the administration, then they will be deducted nine league points.”
And the British government has imposed a series of sanctions on Abramovich, including freezing assets, net worth of personal and business transactions with the UK, and imposed travel and transport bans. The impact on Chelsea includes the following:
1. Chelsea cannot sell tickets for future games.
2. Chelsea cannot sell any merchandise.
3. Chelsea sale is frozen.
4. Stop player transfers and contract renewals.
5. Catering services are still available.
The British government has issued a special operating license for Chelsea, which has ensured that the club can successfully complete the game, staff and players can continue to be paid, season ticket holders can continue to watch the game, and the club can pay outstanding transfer fees. The Special Operating Licence is valid until May 31 this year and can be changed, revoked or suspended by the UK government at any time during this period. It is worth mentioning that the special operating license also stipulates that the cost of Chelsea’s home game does not exceed 500,000 pounds per game, including security, catering and management costs; and the travel cost of away games does not exceed 20,000 pounds per game.Return to Sohu, see more
