Chelsea supporters are set to deliver a massive snub to Roman Abramovich.
The Chelsea Pitch Owners’ Association (CPO) look certain to veto the sale of Stamford Bridge to the Russian billionaire at an EGM on October 27th.
Chelsea have written to the 12,000 members of the CPO asking them to release the freehold of Stamford Bridge so the club could in the future relocate to a new 65,000 seater stadium.
CPO was set up in 1993. At the time, the fans were keen to prevent Stamford Bridge from being sold for development.
