Chelsea have temporarily suspended the club’s credit cards, according to talkSPORT


Chelsea have had their club credit cards temporarily suspended by their card company following penalties imposed on owner Roman Abramovich, according to talkSPORT.

The suspension was put in place while the card company assesses the terms of the license issued to Chelsea by the government after Abramovich’s assets were frozen on Thursday.

Abramovich was sanctioned by the British government

Club officials hope the suspension will be lifted soon and the Blues have not had their bank accounts frozen.

Good news for the Blues, however, is that Nike would remain committed to their partnership with the club.

Kit sponsor Three has temporarily suspended its deal with the club and called for its brand to be removed from the Stamford Bridge shirts and pitch earlier this week.

It comes after the UK government imposed sanctions on club owner Roman Abramovich.

But The Athletic reports that Nike, who have been the Blues’ kit supplier since 2016, are set to stay with the club.

The sports brand has reportedly signed a 15-year deal worth around £900m with the West Londoners.

Chelsea could have had a problem if Nike had pulled out of a deal with the club

Nike produces Chelsea’s match kits, replica kits and training gear.

And that should continue, despite the current situation surrounding the club.

Abramovich publicly put the club up for sale earlier this month, but a deal has yet to be agreed.

However, any sale now appears to be on hold, with the Russian owner’s assets frozen, which is hampering the club in many ways.
