Once again, Chelsea has issued a public statement disputing a report pertaining to a potential change in the club. Just a couple weeks ago, Chelsea FC spokespeople refuted a Times report claiming that owner Roman Abramovich is trying to tell the team.

Tonight, the club is showing a red card to an Express article that claims small alterations are being made to the official club crest, which has been in use since Abramovich himself approved the design in 2005.

A Chelsea spokesperson told the publication: “We are not planning to redesign or alter our club crest in any way.” This is in contradiction with their supposedly insider source, who told the media outlet: “The crest is being redesigned. There won’t be massive changes but it’s being given a freshen up.”

Chelsea, who market themselves as “the pride of London,” first introduced a lion to their crest in 1953. In 1986, they went with a simpler design that included a different version of the ferocious feline, with the letters CFC added. The current version (2005 onward) is a variation of the one that was in use 1953-1986).
