Chelsea Foundation hosted a ‘Chelsea Challenge’ workshop for students from AMOS Sports Business School, with the winners enjoying an unforgettable prize.

The students initially participated in the challenge at Stamford Bridge, where they were tasked with devising a campaign focused on either improving the landscape of racism in society or building a wider community of fans at Chelsea Women’s matches.

Students from the winning groups were then invited into Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham for an exclusive visit and to meet with Benoit Badiashile.

Badiashile joined the students for a Q&A and presented the winners with their certificates.

One of those winners, Emilie Fisher, said: ‘The Chelsea challenge is the one I've been looking forward to the most this semester. I've heard nothing but positive things about it, I wanted to experience it but above all I wanted to win it, so I'm proud. It's a project that allows us to participate directly in causes that affect us all, and I had a lot of fun doing it with my team.

‘We were then lucky enough to visit Cobham, and being a Chelsea fan, I'm happy to have had this privilege. It's a place that not many people have the chance to discover, so I'm very happy to be one of those people. We were also surprised by a visit from Benoit Badiashile and I'm grateful to have been able to experience this moment.’

Alice Lesueur, added: ‘Meeting Benoit Badiashile was an honour and a fantastic surprise. It was incredibly inspiring to receive our certifications from him. It was a beautiful surprise from Chelsea Foundation to reward our efforts with such a memorable moment.

‘Having a player like Badiashile personally acknowledge our work made us feel truly valued and appreciated. This recognition motivated us even more to continue our efforts in promoting diversity and fighting discrimination and it was an unforgettable experience.’
