There have been several speculations and suggestions as to who the new owner of Chelsea Football Club would be, now that the current owner, the Russian Businessman, Roman Abramovich, has declared officially his desire to sell the London based club.
On Wednesday, Abramovich released an official statement where he announced his intention and why he want to sell Chelsea FC, stating that he only made the decision in the best interest of the club, the fans, the employee as well as the club’s sponsors and partners.
Following his declaration, different Billionaires across Europe and America have been linked to being favourites who could secure the ownership of the London club.
Among those speculated, Todd Boehly, who had once shown his desire to buy the club by launching his bid to acquire the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League winning club in January but was denied is now considered the favourite to secure the club’s ownership.
A report by ESPN suggested that Boehly was interested in purchasing a Premier League club before the COVID-19 pandemic, with Tottenham and Chelsea on his list of candidates. His previous attempt to buy the club has portrayed him as the favourite among others interested in acquiring the London based club’s ownership.
In a situation like this, the first question that comes to mind of all the club’s supporters is who is Todd and does he have what it takes to become their club owner?
However, Chelsea fans should be less worried about this, because in Boehly they’ve got a very rich man with wider administrative experiences and more knowledge about sports.
Who is Todd Boehly?
Todd Boehly is an American businessman and philanthropist. He is the Co-founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and controlling member of Eldridge Industries and boasts a net worth of £4.72billion.
Eldridge is a holding company with offices in New York, Boston and London, and have a history of investment in industries including technology, media, real estate and sport.
The company headquarters is located in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Currently, Eldridge owns a stake in Major League Baseball franchise the Los Angeles Dodgers. In December 2021, it was confirmed that Boehly was heading a bid to take a controlling stake in National Women’s Soccer League side Washington Spirit.
As of October 2021, he is the interim CEO of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
With all this, Chelsea FC supporters can put their minds at rest because, with Boehly, Chelsea will become even better than it used to be.
We believe that with or without Roman Abramovich, Chelsea Football Club will continue to be among the best teams in Europe as well as the world as a whole.
Chelsea won UEFA Champions League in the 2020/2021 season and so far this season, the English team has won both the UEFA Super Cup and The FIFA Club World Cup in Dubai.
