Madrid. The sanctions announced by the UK government against the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich because of his close ties with Putin prevented Chelsea from selling tickets for their games.

Chelsea still cannot sell new tickets for home Premier League games, but existing season ticket holders will be able to attend whilst tickets will be available for women’s games. Away supporters will also now be able to purchase tickets. Chelsea fans will also be able to attend the upcoming FA Cup semi-final at Wembley after the Football Association was involved in talks to ensure fans of both the Blues and their opponents Crystal Palace could attend.

Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston said: “The Government has today made alterations to the license to Chelsea Football club so that fans will be able to access tickets to away matches, cup games, and women’s fixtures.

“I would like to thank fans for their patience while we have engaged with the football authorities to make this possible. Since Roman Abramovich was added to the UK’s sanctions list for his links to Vladimir Putin we have worked extensively to ensure the club can continue to play football while ensuring the sanctions regime continues to be enforced.”
