Chelsea Football Club step up delegate offeringChelsea Football Club is now offering all meetings and events bookers the chance to include a popular museum or stadium tour.
Part of the club’s Match Fit Meetings initiative, which aims to help improve the health, wellbeing and productivity of delegates, the tours provide much needed fresh air and exercise, alongside the chance to get up close to the famous Stamford Bridge pitch.
The tour upgrades will help delegates reach the recommended guideline of walking 10,000 steps per day. As such, Chelsea Football Club has calculated that an hour long tour will contribute up to 1,102 steps per delegate.
Several tour upgrades of various lengths are available. On offer is the hour-long full guided tour with entry to Chelsea’s museum (the largest football museum in London), as well as the tour highlights of the press room, home and away changing rooms, tunnel, dug out and view over the pitch from the stands. A behind the scenes visit gives a 30 minute whirlwind tour of the stadium with access to the home team changing room, tunnel and pitch side.
Alternatively bookers can choose a museum only tour and get interactive with exhibits such as the adidas Shooting Gallery which teaches how best to strike a ball for maximum accuracy and power. The 670sqm space also includes 50 iconic football shirts including those of Chelsea legends Peter Osgood, Gianfranco Zola and Kerry Dixon.
Simon Hunter, Head of Venue and Brand at Chelsea FC, comments: “With meetings traditionally involving lots of time seated indoors, our Match Fit Meetings initiative aims to address this with activities to help delegates stay supple and alert. As part of our commitment to providing a healthy environment, we are now offering tour upgrades for the first time which are not only active but allow delegates to experience some of the things that make our venue unique. We hope our tour and museum offering will help delegates get a fresh perspective and enjoy new experiences as part of the business environment”.
The tour and museum upgrades follow the Match Fit Meetings exercise guides launched earlier this year. Upgrades start from £7.00+VAT per person and can be tailored to the requirements of any meetings or events group.
