Chelsea match to go ahead

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have confirmed their home game with Fulham on Boxing Day will go ahead as planned, despite the possibility of industrial action by Tube drivers.

The start of legal action aimed at halting the strike - which could affect several sporting fixtures - in a row over pay was delayed at the High Court on Wednesday. London Underground (LU) is challenging the validity of the strike called by the Aslef union's leadership over its claims for additional Boxing Day pay.

A hearing had been set for 10:30am at the High Court in London but was rescheduled for 2pm. However, before that hearing could take place, Chelsea released a statement saying: "Following careful consideration, Chelsea Football Club's match against Fulham will take place as planned at 1pm on 26th December."
