Youngsters to play in a high profile tournament.

Recommended Posts

From the official Chelsea site:


Chelsea's youth team will take part in a major tournament featuring many of the world's top clubs in Malaysia in August.

The Champions Youth Cup is a new event and it will see AC Milan, Ajax, Arsenal, Boca Juniors, Flamengo, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Porto, Internazionale, Juventus, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and PSV Eindhoven as well as Chelsea send Under 19 teams to play alongside national youth teams from Qatar and Malaysia.

Held between 5-19 August, there will be 34 matches across seven venues. Four groups of four teams play round robin matches before a knockout stage and then a final in the National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday Aug 19.

'The tournament shows that Malaysia matters to the clubs,' said tournament promoter Jonathan Price at today's launch.

'Every club will be accompanied by a great from the past to act as a club ambassador and each one of them is committed to participate in community events that will embrace over 3,000 young children.'

The tournament draw will take place in Malaysia on 19 April.

It's great to see the youth team gets to play matches against some top quality opponents. Maybe Chelsea could manage to get Zola to accompany the youth team as Chelsea's ambassador.
