Chelsea owners Todd Boehly and co. made target of sticker campaign after poor results

After the immense success that Chelsea had under Roman Abramovich, a lot was expected from Todd Boehly especially after the American promised loads in a speech after he bought the club. But while the Stamford Bridge side have been one of the highest-spending teams since Boehly took over, things on the field haven’t gone according to plan. The club missed out on European football with a poor 2022/23 season and that has continued this term with the Blues still struggling.

That combined with the fact that Boehly’s ownership is about to hit it’s two-year mark and comments from the club’s chief executive Chris Jurasek has seen fans become angry recently. That was especially after Jurasek called supporters “customers” and cut bus subsidies for away travel did not go down well with the fans.

Chelsea owners made a target of a sticker campaign as fans protest

However, things have taken a slight turn for the worse as stickers have been spotted across Stamford Bridge that portrayed the Chelsea owners (Behdad Eghbali, Todd Boehly and José E Feliciano) as clowns. The stickers bears a striking resemblance to a circus advertisement and has the name “Clownlake Three Ring Circus” above the three men.

Not only that, it has the words “Get Them Out. We Want Our Chelsea Back” underneath them. Both Eghbali and Feliciano own Clearlake Capital, and make the private equity firm’s majority share (61.5%) of Chelsea while Boehly owns under 13% of the club. The stickers come after the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust wrote to the club and their owners to express their concerns regarding recent actions and performances.

The letter asserted that the fans are not happy with the way things are going and that things are likely set to “manifest itself in more targeted chanting, especially at televised games.” Not only that, the letter also indicated that a section of the fans are more than willing to produce a “more organised, overt, and impactful forms of protest.”
