Todd Boehly, owner of Chelsea, suggests holding an All-Star Game for the Premier League.
New Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly has pitched the idea of an American style all-star Premier League game between a north and south team.
In a New York conference, the Blues’ new co-owner, who also owns stakes in the Los Angeles Dodgers and Lakers, said he had already discussed the concept with Premier League rivals. The best players from each conference compete in exhibition all-star games in both Major League Baseball and the NBA.
The money received may be utilized to funnel further funding from the top of the football pyramid down.
The MLB All-Star game this year brought in 200 million dollars (171 million pounds) over the course of a Monday and a Tuesday, according to Boehly. “People are talking about additional money for the pyramid,” he added.
We thus believe that a north-versus-south all-star game for the Premier League could be readily done.
Boehly was talking at the SALT thought leaders conference and lifted the lid on Chelsea’s sacking of Thomas Tuchel.
Tuchel was fired last week following Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb. Tuchel guided Chelsea to the Champions League title in 2021.
Graham Potter has been appointed as Tuchel’s replacement, and Boehly alluded to a rift with the German.
Boehly continued, “You have to make sure you’re aligned with the individuals who are managing the firm when you take over any business.”
Tuchel, who achieved remarkable success at Chelsea, is undoubtedly very skilled. Our goal for the team was to choose a coach and a manager who were really interested in working together.
“It wasn’t about Zagreb, it was about the shared vision of what we wanted Chelsea to look like.”
“It wasn’t a decision that was made because of a single win or loss. It was a decision that we thought was the right vision for the club.”
Boehly also confirmed Chelsea’s plans to run a multi-club model, similar to the City Football Group, which owns Manchester City.
“We’re going to be continuously adding resources,” he said.
“We’ve talked about having a multi-club model. I would love to continue to build out the footprint.”
Chennai Open: Eugenie Bouchard defeats Karman Thandi at the Chennai Open, ending the Indian Challenge in singles.
Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard defeated India’s Karman Kaur Thandi in the round of 16 of the Chennai Open WTA 250 tennis competition, winning 6-2, 7-6, and securing a place in the singles quarterfinals on Wednesday.
With Thandi’s exit, the Indian challenge in the singles draw came to an end. The country’s No.1 Ankita Raina had gone down to Tatjana Maria in round one on Tuesday.
The Indian No. 2 came back and won two games against Bouchard after being unchallenged for a large portion of the first set. As the former No. 5 Canadian in the world finished the set 6-2, Thandi’s inconsistency hurt him. read more..
