This week, the official Chelsea website brings you news of the FA Cup fifth round draw, as well as all the details surrounding an exciting UEFA festival coming to the capital in May…

Champions League fever looms
As Stamford Bridge prepares to play host to the 2013 Women's Champions League final in May, UEFA are bringing the Champions Festival to London.

Running from Thursday 23 May through until Sunday 26 May, the festival, which is free to attend, will feature a whole host of activities for families and football supporters of all ages, including giving fans the opportunity to have their photo taken with both the Champions League and Women's Champions League trophies.

Festival attendees will also have the chance to visit the UEFA Champions League Museum to experience all the memories of past tournaments, with children able to take part in a variety of skills clinics and coaching courses put on by professional coaches throughout the week.

Festival ambassadors, including Faye White, one of the most iconic figures in women's football, will be on hand to meet and greet fans, who will also be invited to participate in an exciting schedule of entertainment hosted by UEFA Champions League partners.

The Champions Festival will be the first major event to come to the home of the 2012 London Olympics, taking place at the International Quarter, close to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

With more details set to be announced in the coming weeks, it certainly looks like a weekend to keep free in the diary.

Lincoln Ladies await in cup clash
Meanwhile, the draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup was made earlier this week, with the Blues being handed a tricky tie away at Lincoln.

Emma Hayes' side will be desperate to erase the disappointing memories from last season's competition when we were beaten finalists, losing to Birmingham City on penalties.

The game will take place on Sunday 17 March at 2pm.
