Chelsea Owner, Todd Boehly Appeals to Frustrated Fans Amid Team’s Struggles


Todd Boehly, co-owner of Chelsea Football Club, has appealed to fans for patience as the club navigates its long-term project.

Since joining Stamford Bridge alongside Clearlake Capital, Boehly has served as chairman amidst a challenging period marked by disappointing results.

With Chelsea finishing 12th last season and currently positioned 11th, discontent among supporters has been evident, manifested in anti-Boehly chants during matches.

In an interview with Forbes, Boehly acknowledged the fans’ frustrations but emphasized the importance of staying dedicated to the project’s vision moving forward.

“We just need to let the process develop and give them the time to go from being unbelievable individual players with great skills to fold into a team,” Boehly claimed.

“The good news is people care so much. And the bad news is people care so much. That leads to times when they’re frustrated with the team and the owners. I get that, but we just have to continue to stay the course.”

In a unique arrangement with his fellow co-owners, Todd Boehly is slated to step down from his position as chairman of Chelsea Football Club in 2027.

Under the terms of the agreement, Boehly and Clearlake Capital will have the opportunity to nominate the chairperson every five years.

Boehly initially appointed himself for the first term, with Clearlake anticipated to exercise their option for a change.

Despite speculation, Chelsea has vehemently denied any indication of discord between Boehly and Clearlake co-founders Behdad Eghbali and Jose Feliciano.

If Boehly remains part of the ownership group, he will have the chance to appoint a new chairperson in 2032, potentially reinstating himself to the position.
