Chelsea bidder speaks for the first time since takeover plans

Todd Boehly is in pole position to buy Chelsea in the coming days.

The American businessman speaks out for the first time since he was given the green light to buy Chelsea along with fellow Dodgers owner Mark Walter and Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss.

Boehly said: “There’s nothing like sports to excite passion. And if you have passion, then you have people who care about things. And if you have people who care about things, you have great opportunity.

“And really, it’s about curating that experience, that access, that opportunity. We’ll have 4 million people coming out to Dodger Stadium this year.

“So, our goal is to give them the best possible experience. We still have the most affordable tickets in the league basically, for a stadium that’s full regularly.

“In some sports like the NFL, they share all the media money. In baseball, you’re really a derivative of your local market. The Premier League’s similar.

“If you look at the way it works, to be one of the big brands, you have a structural advantage. And for us, we’re always looking for structural advantages.”
