Chelsea take action against trespassers after multiple incidents

Chelsea bans six trespassers following multiple instances of trespassing at Stamford Bridge as well as Cobham training ground.

The Blues have faced the trespassing issue for the third time in as many months. Get Surrey reports that the club has obtained an injunction which will prevent unauthorized access.

The Statement reads:

“Chelsea FC has obtained an injunction preventing unauthorised access to Stamford Bridge and our Cobham training ground.”

“The injunction follows three separate incidents of trespass at Stamford Bridge on September 29, October 19 and November 9, 2017.”

“The injunction was sought against six named individuals, plus other unnamed individuals who may seek to trespass in future.”

“Three of the named individuals have provided undertakings to the court not to attempt to access Stamford Bridge or the Cobham training ground.”

“The remaining three named individuals, plus any individuals who may attempt to trespass in future, will be subject to a court order prohibiting them from doing so.”

“Chelsea Football Club treats security and safety issues with the utmost importance and will continue to enforce the robust security measures in place for the protection of all of our visitors.”

Further details of the injunction

Due to the recurring incidents of trespassing, the court order specifies a “Red Area” and a “Green Area” for the six men who are listed in the court order.

The “Red Area” marks the Stamford Bridge barring the Copthorne Hotel, whereas the “Green Area” implies the outskirts of the venue from the ticket office to the East Grand Reception.

The order specifically mentions that the people enlisted would not be allowed access to the venue and training ground without the club’s permission.

Author’s Take:

The club has every right to take action against these trespassers who have been creating issues repeatedly. Being a fan is one thing, but these kinds of actions are getting out of limit and unacceptable. The West London side would hope that these kind off-field issues won’t interfere when Antonio Conte’s side host Stoke City.
