Paul Canoville will be back at Stamford Bridge next month and Chelsea fans are invited along too.

Black and Blue Legends 2023 is the return of a popular annual event celebrating Chelsea Football Club’s ethnic and racial diversity, since Paul’s debut in 1982.

That was a historic moment as he became the first black player to appear in our men’s first team, with his achievements and the challenges he overcame now acclaimed with the Paul Canoville Suite at the stadium.

It is Under The Bridge that will be the venue hosting this year’s Black and Blue Legends which also serves as a fundraiser for the Paul Canoville Foundation, with money raised going directly towards supporting its work in schools with children and young people.

A full evening of entertainment on Saturday 14 October will include Chelsea legends, live ska music and reggae and soul DJs, the grand final of The Race – a Black and Blue Legends quiz, special guests and more.

Tickets must be purchased in advance.
