BREAKING: Chelsea sponsor ‘Three’ have suspended their sponsorship

BREAKING: Chelsea sponsor 'Three' have suspended their sponsorship

The future of European champions Chelsea has been plunged into doubt after Russian owner Roman Abramovich was hit Thursday with UK government sanctions in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

It was announced that the Russian was placed on the UK government’s sanction list, barring the sale of the club as his assets have been frozen.

The billionaire — described by the UK government as part of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle — had already signalled his intention to sell the club last week as pressure mounted.

UK Culture Secretary, Nadine Dorries, said the priority was to “hold those who have enabled the Putin regime to account”.

Three statement: “We recognise that this decision will impact the many Chelsea fans who follow their team passionately. However, we feel that given the circumstances, and the government sanction that is in place, it is the right thing to do.”
