Chelsea Football Club recently hosted an exclusive experiential event called ‘Extra Time’, to showcase its meetings and events offerings. Guests also got a sneak preview of the substantial refurbishment of the stadium’s iconic West Stand.

Over 600 guests attended the ’Extra Time’ event, at which each of the stadium’s different business areas hosted interactive experience stations for guests to immerse themselves in, alongside a live set from world famous DJ Trevor Nelson. 

The Meetings & Events team displayed their creativity with a fun Alice In Wonderland-themed tea party, highlighting the expertise of the club’s catering partners, Levy Restaurants UK, who provided innovative culinary delights to complement the theme.

Chelsea legend and club ambassador Tore Andre Flo was on hand to coach guests taking part in a penalty shootout competition, with the winner receiving a matchday hospitality experience at a game this season.

Simon Hunter, head of venue and development, commented: "The event was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our diverse offering to both our B2B and B2C clientele, as well as give our guests the chance to get a first look at the newly refurbished West Stand."
