Sale of Chelsea to Dodgers Part-Owner Approved by UK Government
05/25/2022 12:52am

Roman Abramovichs 19-year ownership of Chelsea is ending after the British government approved the sale of the Premier League club by the sanctioned Russian oligarch to a consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly.The government had to be sure that Abramovich, who was sanctioned over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin after the invasion of Ukraine, did not profit from the enforced sale of the club that his investment turned into one of the most successful in European football.The reigning FIFA Club World Cup winners and 2021 European champions will be sold for 2.5 billion pounds $3.1 billion the highest price ever for a sports team with Premier League approval already granted on Tuesday.Chelsea has been operating under a government license since Abramovichs assets were frozen in March and it expires on May 31. Given the sanctions we placed on those linked to Putin and the bloody invasion of Ukraine, the long-term future of the club can only be secured under a new owner, British Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said. We are satisfied the proceeds of the sale will not benefit Roman Abramovich or other sanctioned individuals.More Roman Abramovich CoverageBusinessApr 14UK Freezes Record $13 Billion in Assets Linked to Abramovich AssociatesRussia-Ukraine WarMar 20Oligarch Roman Abramovich&039s $50 Million Colorado Mansion Could Become a Sanctions TargetThere were weeks of discussions between officials from Chelsea and the government over securing the guarantee Abramovich could not gain financially. The sale proceeds will initially go into a frozen account before going to charity.We will now begin the process of ensuring the proceeds of the sale are used for humanitarian causes in Ukraine, supporting victims of the war, the British government said in a statement. The steps today will secure the future of this important cultural asset and protect fans and the wider football community.Delays approving the sale centered on the fate of 1.6 billion pounds $2 billion loaned to Chelsea by Abramovich since 2003 that provided the funding to build a mens squad that won 21 trophies during his ownership. Government assurances were needed from Abramovich, who has not condemned Russias war in Ukraine, about writing off the debt that was linked to companies he controlled. Boehly has already started attending Chelsea games in recent weeks since the club approved the sale to the consortium that also features Dodgers principal owner Mark Walter, Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss, and funding from private equity firm Clearlake Capital.It was a hotly-contested sale process, with four groups in the final running, before Boehlys group was chosen on May 7 after guaranteeing 1.75 billion pounds $2.2 billion of investment in the team.Chelsea fans have become accustomed to lavish spending under Abramovich, with more than $1 billion net spending on players.Chelseas ability to sell match tickets and commit to new player spending has been curbed by the sanctions but now the new ownership is set to provide investment to manager Thomas Tuchel to strengthen the squad.The certainty is that Chelsea will be playing in the Champions League next season after finishing third in the Premier League last Sunday despite the off-field turmoil. The womens team won a league and cup double with a squad funded by Abramovichs investment.Chelsea had won the mens championship only once in 1955 when Abramovich bought the club in 2003. Helped by expensive signings, the club won the Premier League two years later and has added four more since then, most recently in 2017.Investment is needed in Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has the smallest and most dated stadium of the Premier Leagues most successful clubs, with plans for a rebuild of the 41,000-capacity venue put on hold by Abramovich in 2018 when British-Russian diplomatic tensions deepened.The $3.1 billion cost of Chelsea eclipses the $2.3 billion paid in 2018 for the NFLs Carolina Panthers.As well as being part owner of the MLBs Dodgers, Boehly also has minority stakes in the NBAs Los Angeles Lakers and WNBAs Los Angeles Sparks.

WATCH: Flames' Rasmus Andersson Scores Improbable Short-Handed Goal Vs. Oilers
05/24/2022 9:40pm

Scoring a short-handed goal is rare. Scoring on a shot from your own zone is nearly impossible. Calgary Flames defenseman Rasmus Andersson checked both of those boxes on one play on Tuesday night.With his team trailing the rival Edmonton Oilers 3-2 and the power-play nearing its conclusion, Andersson fired a shot across the ice and, well, you have to see what happened next:Oilers goaltender Mike Smith appeared to lose sight of the puck when it was in the air, which allowed the costly goal score. The score was suddenly knotted at three apiece with just over nine minutes remaining and Edmontons Rogers Place crowd was stunned.The goal, while remarkable, didnt propel Calgary to victory. Edmontons Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the go-ahead goal with 3:27 remaining in the third period, and Evander Kane added an empty-netter in the final seconds to seal the win.With another victory, the Oilers now lead the series 3-1 in the Battle of Alberta. They have won three straight games in the series after allowing nine goals in Game 1.Edmonton has a chance to clinch a spot in the Western Conference final as the series shifts to Calgary on Thursday night.This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Between game-winners, poster dunks and sideline celebrations, every night of the first round has provided a highlight that will be played back for years to come.Lucky for basketball fans, the action is just getting started.

Not content to sit back, they continued to pour on the points out of the halftime break with eight third-quarter 3-pointers. Luka Doncic, Spencer Dinwiddie, Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith all recorded a pair of triples to give Dallas a 29-point lead heading into the final quarter.Every point proved crucial as Golden State mounted an impressive comeback and even cut the lead to eight with 3:23 remaining. The Mavericks held on to force a Game 5, largely behind their third-quarter shooting display.May 23: Derrick White throws it up, Jayson Tatum throws it downTatum flies in for the finish The celtics are in the midst of an 18-1 run on ABC pic.twitter.com/bF661cOFEJ NBA NBA May 24, 2022After a lethargic performance in Game 3, the Celtics came out firing in the first quarter of Game 4. Boston raced out to an 18-1 advantage over Miami in the opening minutes, and the run was punctuated by Derrick Whites fast break alley-oop to Jayson Tatum.The Celtics were in control all night, pulling out to an 18-point lead after one and a 24-point halftime lead.

We saw it with Devin Booker last year. Jalen Brunson has taken that leap this year. But its someone on the opposite team of Brunson that has emerged in a big way. Andrew Wiggins, who was a 2022 All-Star, is now living up to that billing with his strong two-way play for Golden State.On one end of the floor hes tasked with slowing Luka Doncic. Then on the other end, he absolutely eviscerated him on this incredible poster dunk in Game 3. This series has seen Wiggins transform into a different player with increased confidence. Golden State fans will be eagerly hoping to grab a poster of that dunk.

Then, the Celtics cut it to one. And then the Heat closed the door.On the ensuing possession, Max Strus drilled a clutch 3-pointer to put Miami up 96-92. The Celtics then had the Heat down to the end of the shot clock, but Bad Adebayo drilled a highly contested shot over Al Horford to put the Heat up six en route to a 109-103 Game 3 win in Boston.May 20: Steph Curry puts the Mavericks to sleepSteph said: NIGHT NIGHT, DALLAS pic.twitter.com/qNWiztcrMW Warriors on NBCS NBCSWarriors May 21, 2022Luka Doncic was a star in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals, but Steph Curry made sure to let everyone know who runs the show at Chase Center.The Warriors guard helped lead a second-half charge after the Mavericks took a 14-point lead into halftime.

In Game 2, Smart made sure there wasnt a repeat collapse.Punctuated by his deadly crossover and jumper over Max Strus, Smart turned in a masterful performance 24 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds and three steals. Most importantly, Smart and the Celtics now return to Boston with the series even at one apiece.May 18: Steph Curry dances on the MavericksStephGonnaSteph pic.twitter.com/bw8MFzEAm9 Golden State Warriors warriors May 19, 2022The Warriors opened up a nine-point lead over the Mavericks at halftime of Game 1, but one thing was off: Steph Curry. That all changed in the third quarter, when the Warriors broke the game open and Curry found his rhythm.Curry finished off the 112-87 victory with a team-high 21 points and 12 rebounds. While he shot an uncharacteristic 3-for-9 from deep and 4-for-7 from the foul line, Currys impact was obvious.May 17: Jimmy Butler rises up to block Jayson TatumJimmy Butler serves up a REJECTION Just under 3 mins remaining on ESPN pic.twitter.com/DS3nH3japE NBA NBA May 18, 2022Two things were the biggest factors in the Heats Game 1 win over the Celtics to start the Eastern Conference finals: defense and Jimmy Butler.Both of them were on display throughout the second half, highlighted by a spectacular block in the corner against Jayson Tatum. In all, Butler tallied three blocks and four steals to go along with his game-high 41 points.May 15: Grant Williams Grant Williams GRANT AGAIN pic.twitter.com/sQWj9XIc60 Boston Celtics celtics May 15, 2022Sunday was supposed to be the best day of the postseason, with two Game 7s. Well, the Celtics beat the Bucks by 28 and the Mavericks beat the Suns by 33. Even though the games werent close, there were still a number of thrilling highlights.The star of the day was Celtics forward Grant Williams, who scored a career-high 27 points in 39 minutes. He made 7-of-18 3-pointers, which tied the record for most 3s made in a Game 7 and set the record for most 3s attempted in a Game 7.May 13: Game 6 KlayKLAY THOMPSON IS UP TO 8 THREES.CHASE CENTER IS ERUPTING. pic.twitter.com/0lGteNJE3E NBA NBA May 14, 2022No other words are needed. The Warriors needed one more win to eliminate the Grizzlies to advance to the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2019. It didnt look pretty through two-and-a-half quarters, but Golden State closed out the game in style.Who was the man responsible Klay Thompson. Thompson turned back the clock with a vintage Game 6 Klay performance, dropping 32 points on 11-for-22 shooting, including an 8-for-14 clip from 3-point range. It was his best outing in the series, and it couldnt have come at a more opportune time.

The Mavericks were facing elimination against the Suns in Game 6, but Doncic has come up big in elimination games before it was no different this time around.Dallas won 113-86 as Doncic posted 33 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and four steals to force a Game 7. In this play, he split every single Phoenix defender for a two-handed jam plus the foul. May the best team win the series.May 11: Jrue Holiday blocks Marcus Smart in clutch time, throws ball off him to win possessionJRUE WITH A HUGE BLOCK THIS. GAME. pic.twitter.com/uTZwK8sJOM NBA on TNT NBAonTNT May 12, 2022The Celtics looked to have the edge to win Game 5 at home. Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Al Horford kept TD Garden roaring after several momentum-building plays, but champions dont quit. Jrue Holiday, who was not having a good game, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bobby Portis made some big plays on both ends of the floor to take a late 108-107 lead.Boston had a chance to retake the advantage with less than 10 seconds remaining. Marcus Smart attacked Pat Connaughton on the inbounds pass and created enough space for a layup until Holiday swooped in for the block. To make matters worse for Boston, Holiday retained possession after throwing the ball off Smart while almost stepping out of bounds. Holiday also sealed the game with a last-second steal on Smart. Milwaukee is now one game away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Defense played a huge part in that as the Suns got easy points off smart defensive plays. Mikal Bridges, in particular, stood out tonight.Bridges accumulated four steals to mark a playoff career-high, including jumping this pass to the wing which resulted in a fastbreak lob to fellow forward Cam Johnson. The crowd at Footprint Center got on their feet after that dunk.May 9: Draymond Greens dagger block seals Game 4DRAYMOND COMES UP WITH A HUGE BLOCK IN THE CLUTCHMEM 95 GSW 1009.7 remaining in Q4NBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel on TNT pic.twitter.com/sWeV155f7S NBA NBA May 10, 2022The Warriors trailed for the entirety of Game 4 against the Grizzlies in an offensive slugfest. But Golden State stayed within striking distance and made clutch plays to come back and snag the lead with less than a minute remaining.Golden State led by three with 15 seconds to go. Memphis big man Jaren Jackson Jr. had the chance to tie the game with a 3, but Draymond Green read the play and blocked his attempt to seal the game. The shot was far from a good decision by Jackson as the Grizzlies now face elimination in Game 5 with Ja Morants status still up in the air. He did not play in Game 4.May 8: James Harden turns back the clock in Game 4James Harden is in HIS BAGNBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel pic.twitter.com/IISd0vdaTW NBA NBA May 9, 2022James Harden is not scoring the same amount of points he used to back when he was with the Houston Rockets, but he needed to in Game 4 against the Miami Heat on Sunday. The 76ers tied the series at 2-2 with a 116-108 win, and Harden made his mark with 31 points, seven rebounds and nine assists.Down the stretch, he hit some big shots over Miamis outstretched contests that were very reminiscent of the daggers he used to hit in Houston. This is the Harden the Sixers need if they hope to win the title this year.May 7: Klay Thompson hits one-legged 3 in rout vs. MemphisKLAY WITH THE RUNNER FROM DEEP Hes 7-9 from the field on ABC pic.twitter.com/EfjWgfYMtx NBA NBA May 8, 2022The Warriors demonstrated their championship pedigree with a massive rout in Game 3 at home against Memphis. In a game where the Warriors shot over 60 from the field in a 142-112 blowout, there were bound to be some crazy offensive plays to choose from.Lets go with Klay Thompsons one-legged 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down. That bucket pushed the lead to 19 and essentially symbolized this was Golden States night and there was nothing the Grizzlies could do to stop the scoring avalanche.

One of his biggest plays of the night came after Tyrese Maxey made a remarkable defensive play, keeping the ball in play and tossing it over his head to James Harden. On the other end, Embiid hit an and-1 over Bam Adebayo to send the Wells Fargo Center faithful into a frenzy.May 4: Chris Paul finds Mikal Bridges for the alley-oopCP3 up top to Bridges for the oop pic.twitter.com/3YPxJ8WWl6 NBA on TNT NBAonTNT May 5, 2022Chris Paul showed why he is the Point God in the fourth quarter of the Suns Game 2 matchup against the Mavericks.The Phoenix point guard scooped up a loose ball, took it the length of the floor and lofted a lob to Mikal Bridges, who extended and punched it in. The dunk gave Phoenix an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter, one that the Suns would stretch to 27 en route to a convincing win.May 3: Ja Morant hits a floater to seal Game 2 vs. Warriors JA GIVES THE GRIZZ A 3 PT LEAD warriors 101memgrizz 10417 seconds remaining in Q4NBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel on TNT pic.twitter.com/SqouWTYefI NBA NBA May 4, 2022The Grizzlies gave up a late lead in Game 2 against the Warriors, but Ja Morant was determined not to go down 0-2 in the series. Morant propelled the comeback and hit the dagger on a floater to give Memphis a 3-point lead with 30.7 seconds remaining.The young star finished the game with 47 points in a game that further cemented his status as a budding superstar in the NBA. Memphis had lost Dillon Brooks earlier in the game due to a Flagrant 2 foul, but Morant effortlessly picked up Brooks responsibilities on the big stage.May 2: JaVale McGee strips Luka Doncic, slams transition dunkJAVALE MCGEE, THE 1-MAN FASTBREAKNBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel on TNT pic.twitter.com/iyPbxqGIMr NBA NBA May 3, 2022JaVale McGee developed a reputation early in his career for not making the smartest basketball plays. But hes flipped the switch over the last couple of seasons as hes transformed into an efficient reserve big for championship-caliber teams. That was on display again as the Phoenix Suns got off to a 1-0 series lead in the second round against the Dallas Mavericks.McGee stripped Mavericks star Luka Doncic and showed off his ball-handling skills as he steamrolled down the court in transition. Jalen Brunson stood no chance in defending McGees one-handed dunk.May 1: Gary Payton II rises up against Desmond BaneGP2 OVER DESMOND BANE pic.twitter.com/1TR69YPlXK Warriors on NBCS NBCSWarriors May 1, 2022It didnt take long for Gary Payton II to remind people that Ja Morant wasnt the only highflier in the Warriors-Grizzlies series.The Golden State guard detonated on Memphis Desmond Bane in the first quarter of Game 1, helping set the tone for an electric contest.

Curry capped off a 30-point night with some clutch buckets down the stretch in the Warriors comeback effort, including two layups at the rim.Denver knew the ball would be in Currys hands for the crucial plays and did everything defensively to try to stop it blitzing, guarding Curry with length, trapping. Curry still got his way and sent the Nuggets back to Denver as the Warriors now await the winner of the Grizzlies-Timberwolves series.April 26: Ja Morant detonates on Malik Beasley in Game 5OH MY JA pic.twitter.com/r1usnR2ksS NBA on TNT NBAonTNT April 27, 2022Morant hit the game-winning layup to give the Grizzlies a Game 5 win over the Timberwolves, but the play that started Memphis comeback was his massive poster dunk in the final seconds of the third quarter. Minnesota guard Malik Beasley tried to draw the charge, but he ended up being on the wrong side of the poster.The Timberwolves had a 13-point lead at that point, their largest of the game, but failed to hold onto it. It marked the second time in just two games that Minnesota could not finish off Memphis despite having a double-digit lead. Now Morant and the Grizzlies need one more win to advance to the Western Conference semifinals.April 25: Al Horford seals the game, Celtics sweep Nets HORFORD MAKES IT A 4 POINT GAME ON TNT celtics 113BrooklynNets 10913.7 remainingNBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel pic.twitter.com/ItcmxkZPhP NBA NBA April 26, 2022Down 3-0 in the series, the Nets were down to their last chance on Monday. Brooklyn entered the fourth quarter down by 12, but they made a run as Jayson Tatum fouled out in the final minutes. With 22 seconds to play and the lead down to three, Kevin Durant stepped to the line. He buried the first, but missed the second. Instead of taking it slow, the Celtics raced up the court and Al Horford sealed the game with a put-back layup with 13.7 seconds left.The teams added a few more points in the final seconds, but Horfords bucket essentially ended it. Bostons 116-112 victory was the culmination of a 4-0 series sweep over former Celtic Kyrie Irving. The Celtics will get a few days of rest as the Bucks and Bulls finish their series.April 24: Herb Jones puts on a defensive clinic vs. SunsHerb Jones blocks ANOTHER three-pointerHe has 3 blocks NBAPlayoffs presented by Google Pixel on TNT pic.twitter.com/KUBMFUKbxy NBA NBA April 25, 2022The Pelicans tied up the first round series against the Suns, and a 2021 second-round rookie was behind the momentum shift. Herbert Jones put on a defensive highlight reel all throughout Game 4, especially with some ridiculous blocks from the 3-point line in the second half. This was one of Jones three blocks on the night as the Pelicans grabbed a dominant 118-103 win.The series now heads back to Phoenix for Game 5, but the Suns are not expected to have star guard Devin Booker available, putting more pressure on Chris Paul and company to step up and prove why theyre the No. 1 seed. But Jones, along with undrafted rookie Jose Alvarado, are bringing the heat and intensity on every single play and arent going down without a fight.April 23: Donovan Mitchell alley-oop to Rudy Gobert for the winJAZZ WIN pic.twitter.com/nbta8IWgjg Utah Jazz utahjazz April 23, 2022All hope seemed lost for the Utah Jazz in Game 4 of their first-round series with the Dallas Mavericks. Down by four in the final minute and staring at a 3-1 series deficit, Utahs season was essentially on the brink.
