Dive In


As I have stated before, I have always taken decisions with the club's best interest at heart. In the current situation, I have therefore taken the decision to sell the club, as I believe this is in the best interest of the club, the fans, the employees, as well as the club's sponsors and partners.

That’s Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich announcing his decision to sell the Chelsea football club. Notably, he said the proceeds will go to a foundation to help all victims of the war in Ukraine. Abramovich has been under pressure to condemn President Putin or risk sanctions from the UK government. New York Times has more on the likely buyers and what it means for Chelsea.


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at whether brown lives matter in the time of war—and the inequality within the so-called creator economy. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
