Chelsea supporters will head to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to express concern over the new European Super League [ESL] which the Blues, among the other 11 teams, agreed to join.
It was announced on Sunday night that Chelsea were one of the teams that supported plans for a new ESL competition, which could start as early as August.
Chelsea are among the six English parties that have signed the new proposal. He saw Thomas Thomas Tuchel leave the European Club Association.
They face Brighton in the Premier League in West London on Tuesday, and the reaction will surely disrupt preparations ahead of a league clash that could prove pointless at the end of the season.
And Chelsea supporters, although they are not allowed to enter the field, do not allow the decision made by the club to go peacefully.
Fan group WeAreTheShed confirmed that fans will gather in front of the field before the match to express their dissatisfaction.
“Supporters will head to the Bridge tomorrow at 5.30am so that their voices can be heard in the absence of being in the country,” the post said Twitter.
“This is not focused on the team but on the board.
“Take banners, take signs, but stay socially distant and wear a face cover if you can.”
Chelsea confirmed their involvement with a statement from the club on Sunday.
“FC Chelsea today joined eleven leading European clubs in forming a new medieval competition, the European Super League.
“A joint statement issued by all twelve founding clubs is below. Further information will be provided in due course.
“We look forward to working with all key stakeholders, especially our supporters, as this competition develops.”
