How To Join Chelsea Football Academy in Nigeria

Gus Mears purchased the Stamford Bridge athletic stadium in 1904 with the sole goal of converting it into a football stadium known as Chelsea.

Chelsea Football Club is an English professional football club based in Fulham, west London. The club competes in the Premier League and other English football’s top divisions.

Chelsea is one of England’s most successful clubs, having won more than thirty competitive titles, including six Premier League crowns and nine international trophies.

” Blue is the color” is a chant (anthem) linked with the Chelsea football club, performed by the team and released on February 18, 1972, to coincide with the club’s ultimately unsuccessful appearance in the League cup final of that year against stoke city.

The Blues (Chelsea), like many other professional English clubs, summed their ideals and beliefs with the latin motto ‘Nisi Dominus Frustra,’ which means “everything is in vain without God”…

Stanford Bridge is their home stadium.

As a result, people frequently ask if there is an official Chelsea academy in Nigeria.

This leads us to the following question: “Do you know if there is a Chelsea academy in Nigeria?

The club’s ambassador in Nigeria, Noah Olivier, and president of soccer Africa sports Management, Dominic Egbukwu, revealed the following information to Daily Sunsports: “Chelsea FC’s academy camp will be located on Victoria Island in Lagos and will act as the club’s development center.

His precise words are as follows: “Chelsea FC has chosen Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroon, South Africa, and Ghana for its academy camp in Africa…

At first, they were hesitant to include Nigeria because of the Boko Haram situation, but we were able to persuade them that there was no need for concern in Lagos”.

As a result, Chelsea has tasked my French partner, Olivier, and me with running the camp in Nigeria”.

” We are expecting a 10-man Chelsea delegation from England any moment from now. They want to come and make an inspection before giving us the go-ahead to throw the camp open. It is going to be a big camo and it will admit about 500 youths between 15 and 18 years old after screening which will hold at the national stadium, Lagos.

Arrangements will be made for the feeder teams if the teams such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and PSG come for invitational tournaments.

“The best players among the trainees will be given the option to join Chelsea’s junior team in England, much as Kenneth Omeruo was”.

However, since 2012, when NBF News published that piece, one cannot believe that the dream of establishing a Chelsea FC academy in Nigeria has never materialized.

To summarize, there is currently no officially owned Chelsea Academy in Nigeria.

According to information obtained, there are several boys clubs that operate under the name Chelsea FC, the most well-known of which are those in the Omole – Ojodu region of Lagos and the Rumuola neighborhood of Port Harcourt.

These clubs, on the other hand, are not affiliated with the Premier League.

Regrettably, until the academy is open in Nigeria, no instruction on how to join it may be given.
