Chelsea Football Club sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Peter Harrison, one of the club’s vice-presidents who passed away recently at the age of 84.
Having grown up in Cheshire, Peter started attending games at Stamford Bridge in the 1970s and was a regular at matches and events from then on. A successful businessman and devoted to Chelsea, he assisted us financially in the 1990s and in 1997 was made a vice-president. It is a position that allowed him to travel with the team for our European matches overseas, an opportunity he enjoyed, and he was one of the many who spoke about Munich 2012 as the highlight of his time following the Blues.
Had it not been for the restrictions of the pandemic, Porto this year might have matched that experience for Peter and his family. He ensured supporting Chelsea spread throughout those close to him.
In 2010 he was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for this philanthropic work.
