A morning at CFC

One of the planned destination in the itinerary is Cambridge University, but due to certain reasons and feedbacks, the tour changed the destination to Chelsea Football Club (CFC).
I'm not a fan of any soccer team, but wont mind visit the pitch and the stadium ;)

welcome to CFC! this is an English professional football club based in west London

hubby posing happily

there's a big Adidas store there


thats Mr Ledger, the club tour leader who brought us around the stadium


the big stadium


highly maintained pitch, and visitors are not allowed to ever step on the pitch


the seats


hubby and me while listening to Mr Ledger's speech

we visited their home changing room, with the players' jerseys hanging inside. there's also massage room, pantry, a big washroom for the players


with Mr Ledger again, he's such a friendly and funny guy!


more random shots around the stadium. Chelsea has been successful in Europe by winning the UEFA cup twice.

us with the couple from KL

there're also some merchandise display inside the stadium

We just spent few hours there, snapped some photos, and visited the Adidas store. hubby bought a Chelsea jersey for BIL, with Frank Lampard name on it, which cost us about £66 (RM300++) =_= If you buy the jersey without the player's name, then its about £43 (RM213).
