Roman Abramovich urges Chelsea fans to fight antisemitism as 'sport is about far more than trophies' The billionaire Blues owner spoke of a "battle" against anti-Semitism and invoked the horrors of the Holocaust as a reminder of the atrocities that can result from a failure to tackle hate.

Calling for supporters to "join us in our battle against anti-Semitism", Abramovich said: "I am grateful to Chelsea fans and everyone who has supported us on this journey.

Roman Abramovich has said Chelsea are a club "open to all" as he voiced concerns over a rise in instances of anti-Semitism around the world.



Abramovich, who is Jewish, made the comments as Chelsea played US side New England Revolution in a friendly held as part of the London club's 'Say No to Antisemitism' campaign.

With your help, we have been able to take a leading role in this vital area of work and demonstrate to everybody that we are a club open to all."

Writing in the programme, he said: "While people know us for our teams and our clubs on the pitch, sport is about far more than trophies.

Chelsea have seen challenges in tackling cases of anti-Semitism by fans and they have been praised for their efforts in eradicating the issue.
