EPL: Chelsea begs UK govt to sell tickets as hard times bite

Chelsea are pressing the UK government to allow them sell tickets, despite an asset freeze as a result of sanctions imposed on its owner Roman Abramovich.

Ministers have placed the Blues under a special licence after taking action against the Russian billionaire last week, as part of a set of measures following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The licence seeks to prevent Chelsea and by extension Abramovich from generating new revenue.

Chelsea have now released a statement, in which they disclosed they were pushing ministers so they can sell tickets and hold meetings daily to get their licence amended.

The club said the Premier League and the Football Association had also raised “sporting integrity issues” over the ticket sale ban.

“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,” the statement read in part.
