Premier League refuse Chelsea sponsorship deal with Paramount Plus

Premier League giants Chelsea have seen hopes of a sponsorship agreement with Paramount Plus dashed on Sunday.

That is according to reliable outlet The Athletic, who have provided a fresh insight into the ongoing efforts of the powers that be at Stamford Bridge to secure a new jersey sponsor for the club.

Recent media reports had pointed towards gambling company Stake inching towards a one-year contract agreement with Chelsea.

An ensuing backlash over the ethical ramifications of teaming with a gambling firm, however, had seemingly seen Todd Boehly and co. take a step back from negotiations.

But today’s news of the Premier League’s decision to reject any potential partnership with Paramount has pulled Stake back into the frame, with discussions now in full swing once more.

This comes despite the Premier League’s clubs, back in April, voting in favour of a landmark ban on gambling-based shirt sponsors, set to come into effect in 2026.

Chelsea have been refused permission to sign a shirt sponsorship deal with Paramount Plus by the Premier League due to concerns it could cause problems with the league’s broadcast partners.
