Chelsea FC hosts Leaders Sport Summit 2013

Chelsea Football Club welcomed over 1,000 influential leaders in the world of football and sports when it hosted the Leaders Sport Summit 2013, 9-10 October, for the sixth year running.

The event brought together a high-profile guest list of senior decision makers in football for two days of business, knowledge, best practice and networking.

The Leaders Sport Summit 2013 used every inch of Chelsea Football Club’s venue space with the new purpose-built Sky Deck from Delta Airlines providing a welcome entrance to several seminar rooms, breakout spaces, workshop suites, pitch-side dining and a 1,400sqm exhibition.

“It’s great to be back here at Chelsea FC to host our sixth annual conference in central London,” said CEO of Leaders, James Worrell. “As one of the most globally-recognised football clubs, synonymous with quality, it’s more than fitting that our event takes place here and more importantly, it provides us with the versatile, blank-canvas space we need.”

Simon Hunter, Head of Venue and Brand at Chelsea FC, added: “We were delighted to welcome the Leaders Sport Summit back to Chelsea FC for its sixth year. We have catered for over 2,500 covers over the course of the two days and welcomed some of the most powerful brands and individuals in the world of sport to our venue.”
