Following the announcement of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage fixtures, event booking details for the autumn at Chelsea Football Club have been announced.

Previously on the bench because of potential fixture clashes, the midweeks commencing 30 September, 21 October, and 25 November can now all be booked for events.

When the Blues are kicking off their first away group game in France to play Lille on 2 October, companies, industry organisations or charities are set to be playing at their home ground.

Event spaces include The Great Hall, which is transformed from the match day concourse to a space that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests and Centenary Hall that accommodates 320 people and boasts views over the pitch.

Many major events are already booked to take place at Chelsea Football Club this autumn, including GIANT Health Event 2019, Europe’s largest innovation in health tech conference, PHEX 2019, the UK’s leading exhibition for plumbing and heating professionals, and Sports Video Group’s FutureSPORT conference.

Simon Hunter, head of venue and development at Chelsea Football Club, said: “As a busy football venue we always have to work around fixtures, but this means we are used to delivering large scale events for our clients at short notice. We are delighted to be offering these newly available dates on a first come first served basis.”
