Boehly-led consortium completes Chelsea takeover

A consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital completed their takeover of Chelsea on Monday.

According to the Chelsea FC, The deal will officially go through at the start of this week.

Chelsea has now confirmed that they are under new ownership almost three months after Roman Abramovich decided to sell up.

An ownership group led by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Boehly, Clearlake Capital, Mark Walter and Hansjorg Wyss brokered a deal to buy the Blues for £4.25billion this month.

Last week, the Portuguese government approved the sale of the London club, a green light that was required as Abramovich has Portuguese citizenship.

A statement released by Chelsea on Monday said:

“Under the terms of the agreement, Boehly and Clearlake will share joint control and equal governance of the club. In addition, Boehly will serve as chairman of the holding company.

“Boehly and Clearlake are committed to investing in key areas that will extend and enhance Chelsea’s competitiveness, including the redevelopment of Stamford Bridge, further investment in the academy, the women’s team, and Kingsmeadow Stadium. The owners will also continue the important work of the Chelsea Foundation.”

Upon confirmation of the takeover, Boehly told the club’s website:

“It is an honour for us to become the new custodians of Chelsea Football Club.

“We’re all in, 100 per cent. Every minute of every match.

“Our vision as owners is clear: we want to make the fans proud.

“Along with our commitment to developing the youth squad and acquiring the best talent.

“Our action plan is to invest in the club for the long-term and build on Chelsea’s remarkable history.

“I want to thank ministers and officials in the British government.

“And the Premier League for all their work in making this happen.”

According to the UK government, the deal would not benefit Abramovich.

The sanctions resulted from his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the invasion of Ukraine.

Russian oligarch Abramovich owned Chelsea for 19 years.
