Chelsea issues new statement aimed at UK Government to allow ticket sales

Chelsea have provided an update on the situation surrounding ticket sales for upcoming games.

The Premier League side are currently banned from selling match tickets, due to sanctions placed on Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

The oligarch has significant ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, which has caused the UK to seize his assets.

The Blues are now pushing the UK government to allow them to sell match tickets to fans for the remainder of this season.

A club statement on the situation reads: “We are pressing the Government to allow our supporters to have access to tickets.

“Meetings are taking place daily in search of a resolution. In addition, the Premier League and FA are also discussing with the Government the sporting integrity issues raised if they do not permit fans to attend.

“We are aware of the high level of frustration our supporters are facing over this issue, and we are doing everything we can to resolve it as soon as possible.”
