Chelsea’s shirt sponsor Three has suspended its deal with the club after owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the British government.

Three became the Blues’ official shirt partner in January 2020, with their logo appearing on the front of all Chelsea shirts including the Women’s team and Academy from the beginning of the 202021 season.

Abramovich’s assets were frozen on Thursday, days after he had put Chelsea up for sale. The Treasury said he “has had a close relationship for decades” with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The 55-year-old has denied links to Putin’s regime.

While Chelsea has been given a special license that allows them to continue playing matches and paying current players and staff, they will not be able to sign new players under the terms of the sanctions.

The club is also prevented from selling tickets, merchandise, or spending money on developing or refurbishing Stamford Bridge or the Cobham training ground.

The club shop closed at around 11 am on Thursday “until further notice”. On 25 February, Three had announced they had removed roaming charges for all calls and texts from Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.
