All you need to know about Chelsea's ban


Things have taken a harsh turn for Chelsea after its owner had its assets frozen by the UK Government.


Blues owner, Roman Abramovich, was accused by the UK Government of aiding Russia's Ukraine offensive.


This accusation had Abramovich sanctioned by the United Kingdom Government and led to his overseas assets being frozen, including his football club, Chelsea.


This move was announced on March 10, when news went round that Abramovich, alongside six other high net-being Russians, would be slammed with an asset freeze and travel ban.
