Chelsea and the five other Premier League sides exited the European Super League plans that was launched two days ago.
Posted on their official website, Chelsea’s statement read: “As reported earlier this evening, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that it has begun the formal procedures for withdrawal from the group developing plans for a European Super League.
“Having joined the group late last week, we have now had time to consider the matter fully and have decided that our continued participation in these plans would not be in the best interests of the Club, our supporters or the wider football community.”
This is a huge win for football and it’s fans. There was immediate outrage from the entire community across the world over how the competition was being organized. Chelsea along with Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur had to face the wrath of the fans.
But now that they have withdrawn from the competition, it will be easier to focus on the goals at hand for this season. After drawing level against Brighton, the Blues are set to face off against West Ham United next.
