Chelsea Pitch Owners act

GiveMeSport

Chelsea fans dealt what could be another blow to the club's hopes of moving to a new stadium on Friday after another stormy meeting of Chelsea Pitch Owners.

Supporter-led company CPO, which owns the freehold of Stamford Bridge and in October revolted against Roman Abramovich's bid to buy it back, on Friday afternoon effectively blocked the Blues owner from being able to railroad through any relocation plans.

In what were scenes almost as dramatic as those at last year's extraordinary general meeting, the CPO board caved into angry calls to prevent more shares in the company being sold pending an investigation into whether associates of Abramovich and other club directors engaged in bulk buying prior to the EGM.
