Whilst Football doesn’t give most of us a reason to smile at the moment, the guests at the Audi Soccer Skills Day event certainly were.

30 guests nominated by Audi UK were asked to join some of the coaches from The Chelsea Academy at Chelsea’s training ground in Chobham, Surrey.

After an initial briefing, the groups enjoyed a money can’t buy experience. Firstly, the tour of the facilities which provided a behind the scenes peak at the life of a professional footballer including the gym, swimming pools, boot room, laundry, press room and changing rooms! The tour also took in the Academy for youth players aged 6-21.

The guests then got the opportunity to experience a training session for themselves. Run by the coaches of the Academy the guests were put through their paces passing, heading and performing training drills albeit with intense enthusiasm of a pro but sadly lacking the skill! Once the session came to an end the coaches awarded prizes for the best players in their teams. The top two received a signed Chelsea shirt with the runners up receiving Chelsea and Audi goody bag.
