Todd Boehly and the Clearlake Capital Consortium, the new owners of Chelsea Football Club, have sent a heartfelt message to the club’s supporters.
On Monday, May 30th, 2022, the club’s completion was confirmed on Chelsea’s official website. According to the club’s announcement, the takeover from the Roman Abramovich era was finalized after the Premier League and the UK government approved the transaction.
Hansjörg Wyss, founder of the Wyss Foundation, and Mark Walter, co-founder and CEO of Guggenheim Capital, are also members of the consortium. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Sparks are all owned by Walter and Boehly.
Fans of the club can rest certain that Todd Boehly and his team have the club’s best interests at heart. Because of his familiarity of the club and his success in other sports, the US billionaire, who has a net worth of roughly £3.3 billion ($4.4 billion), has been a favorite option among Chelsea supporters throughout the process.
We are honoured to become the new custodians of Chelsea Football Club,” said Boehly. We’re all in – 100% — every minute of every match. Our vision as owners is clear: we want to make the fans proud. Along with our commitment to developing the youth squad and acquiring the best talent, our plan of action is to invest in the Club for the long-term and build on Chelsea’s remarkable history of success. I personally want to thank ministers and officials in the British government, and the Premier League, for all their work in making this happen.
