Blues suspend stadium plans

LONDON

Jun 1, 2018-

 Chelsea Football Club said on Thursday that work on its new stadium in London would be suspended indefinitely, citing the unfavourable investment climate. The football club did not say if the decision was related to owner Roman Abramovich’s struggles to get a new British visa. He reportedly took Israeli citizenship earlier this week. “Chelsea announces today that it has put its new stadium project on hold. No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur,” Chelsea said in a statement. (REUTERS)
