Fans of Chelsea Football Club are sometimes confused about the actual short name of their team on TV. Sometimes, there’s the issue of licensing, especially on video games like PES, FIFA, Score Hero, or Dream League Soccer, where the 3-letter abbreviations could change, and this is understood to an extent.
Chelsea FC, like other English football teams, uses the 3 letter abbreviation because it can easily fit into sections (small boxes) provided to display the scoreline on the TV and streaming devices. So what is the correct one?
Chelsea’s 3 letters abbreviation is CHE. The Blues adopt it in all competitions, including the English Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, and FIFA Club World Cup. The club is also sometimes referred to as The pensioners.
Chelsea’s short name that was popular in the English football community and abroad was CFC. However, it is no longer a popular term as people prefer to refer to the club by its official name or The Blues. CHE is the standard abbreviation for the club in every EPL game.
