Chelsea fans snap up club shares in 'unprecedented' numbers

Chelsea fans have snapped up shares in record numbers since Todd Boehly's acquisition.

Supporters have spent £175,000 snapping up shares since the club went up for sale in March.

That is compared to just £21,000 in 2021, before Abramovich was forced to sell owing to his links to Vladimir Putin.

Shareholders, Chelsea Pitch Owners, revealed in accounts published this week: “After 19 years of uninterrupted ownership, the football club was sold to new owners during the year.

“Fan concerns over the future of the club led to an unprecedented demand for shares and record sales, which are unlikely to be repeated.

“An amount of uncertainty is to be expected with new owners coming in, although initial dealings with them have been very positive."
