The range of online resources include; nutritional plans, home workouts, including strength and conditioning and cardio challenges. Furthermore, students will have access to number of pre-recorded webinars with Chelsea and St Mary’s University staff and workshops that look to cover topics such as match analysis and football coaching. There will also be guest lectures from St Mary’s University outreach team.

In addition to this, students will also have the opportunity to take part in some of the online gaming competitions and fitness challenges to help the players fill their time alongside their studies.

Chelsea FC Foundation head of region Daniel Jacquart said: ‘We are delighted that during these challenging times we are able to provide students on our post-16 football academy programmes a service that will enable them to not only continue their footballing development but provide them with unique educational experiences.

‘We have a fantastic working relationship with all the colleges the Foundation support and together we look forward to providing more footballing and educational opportunities for future students in years to come.’
