D-day in Stamford Bridge land vote

CHELSEA’S future at Stamford Bridge is set to become clearer today when a key vote takes place over ownership of the stadium’s freehold. Shareholders in Chelsea Pitch Owners, a supporter-led group, will meet tomorrow morning discuss the club’s offer to buy back the land, and later cast their votes. The club need 75 per cent of the vote to win. Chelsea want the freehold to allow it to sell the stadium and move to a new ground, which they promise will be within a three-mile radius if done before 2020. Campaigners Say No CPO are urging shareholders to reject the deal as they still have a number of questions about the offer, which they plan to raise at the meeting.
