Green Bay to the Bridge! Packers star Jimmy Graham checks out Chelsea

Green Bay Packers tight end and Chelsea fan Jimmy Graham was at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to see us take on Wolves.

The NFL star, who has just completed his first season with the Packers having previously played for the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, spent time after the game meeting the squad, as well as Blues legend Didier Drogba.

Five-time Pro Bowler Graham, 32, told us it was his second visit to see the Blues and explained what it was that first made him a Chelsea fan.

The two football codes are of course high up on his list of favourite activities, but he also revealed he has one other daredevil passion. Watch the video to find out more!
 

Chelsea have numerous recent links with the NFL, having recently opened the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium when we beat AC Milan in August 2016.

We also spent time at the Vikings’ training facility, and have previously spent time in the USA on pre-season tours at the training base of the Seattle Seahawks.

The home of the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins are just a few of the other famous NFL stadiums we have frequented, and this spring, we will appear at the home of the New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium, when we take on the New England Revolution in a charity match on 15 May.

More information on that game, which will raise money for projects promoting equality and tolerance, can be found here.

Tickets go on sale this Friday 15 March.
