Chelsea FC have become the latest member of Lime Venue Portfolio, further building on the group’s already large London offering and adding yet another world-class sporting arena into the portfolio.
Chelsea FC’s success on the pitch is reflected within meetings and events, where the business has become one of the most respected venues in the industry. Equally, it is also one of the sporting venue sector’s earliest pioneers, setting up a dedicated events business over 30 years ago.
Based in West London, and easily walkable from Fulham Broadway, it is a highly accessible venue; close to major rail, road, and air routes, and tapping into the ‘M4 corridor’, putting it in close proximity to Heathrow airport. The venue regularly hosts meetings and conferences of every scale, as well as Pitch Events, Dinners, World Cup Viewings, Exhibitions, Christmas Parties, Launches, and Charity Dinners. The onsite hotel opens up options for residential meetings as well.
“We believe we can help Lime Venue Portfolio and that they can really support our business in return,” comments Lucy Adamson, Meetings & Events Manager, Chelsea FC. “It’s clear that event organisers are increasingly looking to book multiple venues with event programmes that cover the whole of the year. Lime Venue Portfolio really understand that market, and it’s something we’re looking forward to working with them on.”
“Chelsea FC is absolutely a pioneer in this industry, being one of the earliest sporting venues to set up a dedicated events business. Now, still today, they remain innovative and an exciting place to host events,” comments Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have them in our group, it’s great news for our customers, as it means they get another stunning location in London for their event programmes.”
