AFC Midnight Football Boys Training with Chelsea Stars

July 21, 2011 by Galvin Tan in Events, Photography with 1 Comment


Chelsea FC was in Malaysia for their Chelsea Asia Tour 2011 and the AFC Midnight Football boys had a chance to participate in various coaching sessions carried out by Chelsea Foundation coaches on the Blue Pitch that has been installed in Damansara Damai.

The Blue Pitch (or to be accurate two pitches side-by-side, one astroturf and one a harder surface) are similar to ones already installed by Chelsea in the London area and in Hong Kong. They provide an all-year-long, all-weather facility for local players who may not have had a proper surface to play on before. At the Chelsea Foundation sessions it was young people benefitting with an emphasis on social inclusion.

Five iconic Chelsea star players, Ashley Cole, Nicolas Anelka, Salomon Kalou, Daniel Sturridge and Patrick van Aanholt visited the facility today with huge media turnout. The stars were there to train with the boys and as usual, crowded by media for interviews and photo opportunities.

Ashley is looking happy here. Perhaps happier than Cheryl now.
