Chelsea will travel to face Wolves on Christmas Eve after finalizing their festive Premier League fixture list, it was announced on Thursday.
While games during the Christmas period usually take place on Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve, their clash will be the first in 28 years to take place the day before Christmas.
The unusual schedule has sparked a wave of criticism. Many argue the west London club’s fans’ long journey to the Midlands will separate people from their families, with some calling on the league to reconsider.
Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, one of the club’s most prominent supporters’ groups, released a statement following the news, calling the decision “completely unacceptable.”
The statement received a lot of support online from other fans, with many commenting on social media to express their opposition to the Premier League fixture list.
