OFFICIAL: Chelsea Will Allow Supporters to Attend Board Meetings
Chelsea are now willing to allow supporters to attend board meetings as they plan on giving fans more say on the club’s decision-making process after the Super League fiasco.
The Blues announced that from July 1st onwards, three supporters will be allowed to attend board meetings and have their say in the decision-making process.
The reason for this move is because the club insists to ensure that ‘supporter sentiment is considered’ in making big decisions in the aftermath of the Super League drama.
It is said that the three supporters will be ‘advisors’ in the meetings and will be chosen through an election and selection process.
Chelsea, meanwhile, will now consult different Fans’ Forum and multiple non-official supporter groups to discuss the process for selecting the three responsible individuals.

However, the supporter advisors won’t have any voting rights and won’t be able to participate in meetings related to players, staff, and the Academy-related matters.
On the other hand, the individuals will have to sign a confidentiality agreement and attend approximately four meetings a year – with Chelsea also giving them the chance to donate £2,500 from the club’s behalf to any UK-based charity upon attending the meetings.
