Chelsea put under pressure as Three release statement over displaying logo



On Saturday, the Premier League confirmed they had suspended Abramovich as director of the club. Barclays have also suspended the club’s bank account and there’s a possibility the Blues could face financial armageddon between now and the summer due to the precarious situation.

Yet despite the suspension of Three’s contract with Chelsea, their logo is still emblazoned on the club’s shirts and training kits. The telecommunications company has now released a statement confirming that they want this issue to be rectified.

Three says there “are ongoing issues with removing the Three logo from the shirts, as a result of kit supply issues and licence restrictions. We have requested that Chelsea reverts with a solution to this issue as soon as possible.”

Three has been Chelsea’s main shirt sponsor since the start of the 2020-21 season. The company’s branding is prominent across the club’s facilities and its decision to suspend the agreement comes as a significant blow to the Blues.

Korean car manufacturer Hyundai agreed on a five-year deal to be the club’s shirt sleeve sponsor in 2018 but also confirmed it has suspended marketing and communication activities with the club. A statement from Hyundai confirmed: “In the current circumstances, we have taken the decision to suspend our marketing and communication activities with the Club until further notice.”

Abramovich is hoping to sell the club and had announced his intentions to part ways with Chelsea after 19 years at the helm. The sanctions have made a sale more difficult, although the government have confirmed they are still hoping to force through a sale in a way that would see Abramovich make no profit from it.
