Chelsea FC hosted an exclusive event to showcase the refurbishment of its West Stand. The club's meetings, events and hospitality offerings were on show, plus a live set from DJ Trevor Nelson. 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 enjoy.

The events team put on an Alice In Wonderland-themed tea party, while American, Asian and Mexican-themed dishes were served at street food stations throughout the Great Hall.

Former player and club ambassador Tore Andre Flo was on hand to coach guests taking part in a penalty shootout competition at the hospitality stand, with the winner receiving a match-day experience at a game this season. Guests could also experience an interactive look around the hotel meeting facilities via virtual reality headsets, enjoy complimentary treatments from the Chelsea Health Club and Spa and have a photo with the Premier League trophy at the Stadium Tours & Museum stand.

Simon Hunter, head of venue and development, said: “The event was a fantastic opportunity for us as a venue 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. It was great to hear such positive feedback from our guests ahead of its launch in October.”
