Leaders in Sport: Women in Sport comes to Chelsea FC

Chelsea Football Club was delighted to host ‘Women in Sport’ last Monday as part of The XX Series during Leaders Week London (8–11 October 2018).

Hosted by Gabby Logan, Women in Sport provided a unique platform to celebrate the successes of female sport and explore the current opportunities and challenges in the promotion, marketing and commercial sponsorship of the women’s game.

The evening was attended by world leaders in the sports industry who are at the heart of driving the growth in women’s sport and amplifying the contribution of women working in in industry. Panel discussions from Chelsea Women’s manager Emma Hayes, club ambassador Katie Chapman and Chelsea Women’s chairman Adrian Jacob provided a platform for open debate around the expansion and future of women’s football, as well as the positive steps taken in the on-going development of the sport.

Head of venue and development at Chelsea FC, Simon Hunter said: ‘”We are delighted to be a host partner for such a fantastic event. It has been a successful year at the club for women’s sport, with Chelsea winning our second Women’s FA Cup in May, and kicking off our season with great form. Women in Sport is a great opportunity to explore the importance and growth of women’s sport.”

Women in Sport was the opening event in the Leaders Week programme, which brought leading members of the international sports industry together to Chelsea Football Club, one of London’s most iconic sporting venues. Chelsea FC was delighted to welcome Leaders Week London back to Stamford Bridge for the first time since its hospitality and events business was rebranded to ‘Club Chelsea’.
