Chelsea Foundation hosts football tournament to encourage more females to play competitively

Taking place at Westway Sports Centre in west London, five teams made up of females aged 13 to 18-years-old took part in the competition.

One group of players were from our Kicks programme, while the rest of the participants were invited by the Chelsea Foundation.

The tournament followed a round-robin format with each team playing each other twice before two play-offs to confirm the finishing places of the teams.

The day ended with all participants entering a raffle where prizes included Chelsea training wear, Nike trainers and Nike and Nando’s vouchers. Participants were also gifted items from club partner, Nike.
