Chelsea was forbidden from selling match tickets last week as part of the sanctions imposed on the club as a result of Roman Abramovich’s assets being frozen.

Chelsea has stated that they are in negotiations with the government, pleading with them to enable ticket sales before major Champions League and FA Cup matches.

The following is a club statement on the current situation:

“We are pressing the Government to allow our supporters to have access to tickets.

“Meetings are taking place daily in search of a resolution. In addition, the Premier League and FA are also discussing with the Government the sporting integrity issues raised if they do not permit fans to attend.

“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.”

Chelsea should have a full away support in Lille on Tuesday because tickets were sold before the sanctions were imposed, but that will not be the case when they visit Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The Blues have sold some tickets, but their quota has not sold out; the club said it is waiting for more information from the government before reopening ticket sales.

Chelsea is in the similar boat when it comes to their April 9 away encounter against Southampton.

The club has announced that fans with tickets are welcome to attend home and Women’s matches, albeit this group will primarily be made up of season ticket holders.

Chelsea has also been severely harmed in other ways as a result of the restrictions, including the club’s inability to sell merchandise.

Spending on away trips has also been capped at £20,000, implying that Easyjet flights will likely take the place of the private jets used by the players.

But all of that might change if Abramovich is successful in selling the club shortly, and there is plenty of interest.
