Chelsea fan protests ‘helped push the Super League plans back indefinitely’

Roman Abramovich was never completely sold on the idea of the European Super League in the first place, as Chelsea finally announced their intentions to pull out of it over night.

This is according to ESPN writer James Olley, as reported below..

So it was no surprise then, that The Blues were the first club to table their intentions to leave the Super League last night, right before their kick off against Brighton in the Premier League, which was inevitably delayed by 15 minutes.

This was because thousands of Chelsea fans had gathered outside Stamford Bridge to loudly voice their discontent at the clubs plans to join the new league.

Well, it appeared that these protests, as well as the mass fan backlash on social media and in mainstream media, helped ‘push the Super League plans back indefinitely’, according to James Olley once again.

This will be treated as a real victory for those that matter in this sport, the fans, and as it absolutely should be.
