Amid the ownership turmoil for Chelsea FC, they have advanced to the FA Cup final after beating Crystal Palace. They will face Liverpool who defeated Manchester United.

Chelsea’s ownership issue appears to be coming to an end as the Ricketts family has withdrawn their bid leaving only 3 groups remaining. Canadian sports owner Larry Tanenbaum has joined Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca group’s bid. Tanenbaum also owns Toronto FC as well as NBA’s Raptors, and NHL’s Maple Leafs. The other two groups include Dodgers owner Todd Boehly, as well as a consortium that includes RSL owner David Blitzer.
