Chelsea set to change Chairman in 2027

Chelsea Football Club is poised for a significant leadership shake-up in 2027, with a new chairman set to replace Todd Boehly.

In a groundbreaking agreement, the club’s American co-owners will have the flexibility to alternate the chairmanship between themselves every five years, with the impending change expected at the conclusion of the 2026-27 season.

The decision regarding the first chairman appears to have been part of a multifaceted agreement linked to potential financial liabilities.

While the choice of the new chairman has not been finalized, Boehly is reported to step down from the post, with either Eghbali or Feliciano potentially taking over or appointing a third party.

Boehly, who has often faced criticism from both supporters and media, has been a visible figure as the public face of the ownership group.

However, despite any perceived rifts, Chelsea has maintained that Boehly and Clearlake, the ownership group, have maintained a professional working relationship.

The move to change the chairman comes amidst Chelsea’s current challenges in the Premier League, compounded by financial losses and a recent defeat in the Carabao Cup Final.

Nevertheless, the club remains steadfast in its commitment to its long-term vision.

The overarching objective of the ownership group remains consistent: to elevate Chelsea as a competitive force in both domestic and European competitions, while driving commercial growth to meet the rigorous standards of the Premier League regulations.
