Chelsea fans may be aping the adulterous behaviour of their team’s players, several of whom are alleged to have had affairs

The site surveyed its 420,000 philandering members in England and Wales on which football team they support. Chelsea have more fans on Undercover Lovers than any other team, closely followed by Liverpool and Manchester United.

Whilst the top slots in the Adultery League were dominated by Premiership teams, several from the lower divisions also featured prominently including Championship clubs Leeds United at 5th , Birmingham City at 7th and Brighton at 10th and Division One’s Sheffield Wednesday at 13th. spokesperson Emily Pope comments, “Chelsea fans may be aping the adulterous behaviour of their team’s players, several of whom are alleged to have had affairs, including club captain John Terry and defender Ashley Cole. They may also be seeking some solace for Chelsea’s poor form on the pitch.”

She adds, “Whilst the top four teams in our Adultery League are predictably four of the country’s biggest clubs, the mixture of less fashionable teams from the lower leagues in our table suggest that football fans the length and breadth of the country are playing away from home.”

Some fans are even having their illicit encounters when supposedly attending football matches. As member Alan puts it, “Going to watch an away match is one of the best alibis for me to hook up with my secret lover. I can be absent from home all day and as long as I read up on the live match report online before I get home, I can cover myself convincingly.”
