Chelsea Football Club are still under sanctions due to Roman Abramovich still being our official owner.
Whatever your views on that are, it has been having a number of ludicrous fallouts that continue to effect the every day employees at the club and the players. People just like you and me who have absolutely zero to do with the war in the Ukraine.
The latest issue that has come from the sanctions is Chelsea announcing that they cannot hold the usual Player of the Season awards ceremony that they hold every year, meaning the players and staff will miss out. How is any of this their fault? Yet, they’re now all suffering as well one way or another.
The Chelsea website says that due to the terms of the UK Government licence, an annual awards evening will not be held this year.
As soon as the club is officially in new hands, the sanctions on them will no longer apply. Sheer madness.
