“Chelsea should spend less time worrying about having a few thousand fans at a game, and focus on moving their club into the hands of someone who isn’t a warmonger” | The UK Gov’t condemns Chelsea FC statement in extremely strong terms

The UK government has condemned the statement of Chelsea FC of wanting to play their FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The club, in a statement asked the FA to allow their match against Middlesbrough to be played behind closed doors.

“It is important for the competition that the match against Middlesbrough goes ahead, however it is with extreme reluctance that we are asking the FA board to direct that the game be played behind closed doors for matters of sporting integrity.”

Upon confirming the request of the Chelsea FC, the FA stated, “We are aware of Chelsea FC’s request to play their Emirates FA Cup Quarter Final tie against Middlesbrough FC behind closed doors. The matter will be discussed at the Professional Game Board meeting tomorrow.”

However, the UK government has condemned the statement from the club (Chelsea).

“Senior govt source: “We are working around the clock to enable Chelsea to continue operating as a club in the
interests of the fans. This statement threatening Middlesbrough and the rest of
the football league shows they do not seem to understand the seriousness of the situation they are in, being owned by an
entity that has been sanctioned because of links to a person responsible for appalling acts in Ukraine. We are not opposed to Chelsea having fans at games in the long run, but we will not allow money from ticket sales to flow to a sanctioned entity. Chelsea should spend less time worrying about having a few thousands fans at one game, and focus on moving their club into the hands of someone who isn’t linked to a warmonger.”

Again, Steve Gibson, the Middlesbrough chairman doesn’t agree to the statement made by Chelsea FC wanting their match to be played behind close doors.

“I can’t believe it. Sporting integrity and Chelsea do not belong in the same sentence. For 19 years corrupt money has fuelled Chelsea’s success.”

“If they were to beat us in FA Cup, with no fans there, what would that do to the integrity of the competition? Are they going to play all their Premier League games behind closed doors too? This is pathetic by Chelsea.”

Latest Chelsea fixture changes, although Leeds, West Ham, Everton subject to change depending on FA Cup/UCL  participation.

The Chelsea FC has therefore withdrawn the request for their match with Middlesbrough to be played behind close doors.
