Until now, Chelsea operates with a special license that expires on May 31 and that allows it to carry out certain operations
The Premier League approved on Tuesday the purchase of Chelsea by the consortium led by the American billionaire Todd Boehley.
This operation is still subject to the British Government giving a special license to Chelsea that allows its sale, since for now it acts with the limitations due to the sanctions that weigh on the still owner Roman Abramovich.
Right now Chelsea operates with a special license that expires on May 31 and that allows you to carry out certain operations, such as receiving money for television rights and selling tickets for certain matches, but you will need a special extension of this to be able to complete the purchase of Boehly, owner of the baseball team Los Angeles Dodgers.
As explained by the Premier League in a statement, Boehly and its consortium have passed the test of owners and presidents.
Chelsea will now work with the relevant authorities to ensure the transaction can be completed.
Once the Government gives the go-ahead and the operation is completed, Chelsea will be able to operate as normal. This will mean that the club store will reopen, players will be able to buy, sell and renew, as well as tickets for all matches, whether Premier, FA Cup or Champions League.
The group of Boehly will pay about 4,250 million pounds (4,970 million euros) to take over Chelsea, which since 2003 has been in the hands of Abramovich. The Russian oligarch was forced to put the club up for sale due to the sanctions that weighed on him when Russia began the invasion of Ukraine.
