Chelsea to pull out of Super League – BBC report

Chelsea are set to pull out of the breakaway European Super League in a major blow to the plans for a new competition to rival the Champions League. The BBC said they “understand that Chelsea are preparing documentation to request withdrawing from the European Super League.”
