Chelsea FC allowed to sell tickets under new license.
Written by News Room on March 24, 2022
Chelsea fans will be able to attend Champions League and FA Cup matches for the rest of the season under the terms of a new license granted to the club by the United Kingdom government.
The European champions have been hit by a series of restrictions since owner, Roman Abramovich, was sanctioned by the British government over his alleged links to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The new license allows tickets for those matches and any further Champions League, FA Cup or Women’s Super League matches to be sold with the proceeds going to the relevant competition organiser.
Among those had been a ban on tickets not purchased prior to the sanctions being imposed on March 10.
Chelsea will host Real Madrid for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on April 6 and face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals on the weekend of April 16/17 at Wembley.
