New Zealand’s All Blacks were among 16 Rugby Union teams who made Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea Football Club, their base during the final stages of the HSBC World Sevens Series.
The team used every aspect of the venue, staying at the on-site Millennium Hotel, as well as training in the recently refurbished Chelsea Health Club and Spa.
The venue was also chosen due to its food and beverage package offering, with healthy and energising menu choices being of utmost importance to the top-level athletes.
Using the Centenary Hall as a temporary catering facility, Chelsea provided breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, with meal choices including griddled tuna steaks, roast pan lamb, and grilled sea bass. Buffet-style breakfast and packed lunches were also provided for the 340-strong tour each day.
“We were delighted to host each of the Rugby Sevens Teams during their recent tour and are proud to share the facilities that our venue has to offer with many other world-class sporting institutions,” said Head of Venue and Brand at Chelsea Football Club, Simon Hunter.
