Chelsea Foundation tours Champions League trophy across the USA

Ian Woodroffe, Chelsea Foundation’s international development manager, said of the tour: ‘It has been a busy but exciting schedule to visit four locations in 11 days, but it’s been fantastic to engage with so many players and fans along the way. 

‘Being limited to virtual engagement through the pandemic for so long has been difficult, so being able to meet and engage with the players and parents has been fantastic for us and the communities. Bringing the Champions League trophy, along with Tore and Ashley, to these events has really added value to the experience and excitement around our trip.

‘As a club, Chelsea has always demonstrated strong community ethos and this programme, supported by colleagues from the wider club, just amplifies how important the global community is.’
