Chelsea’s Under 23 Development Squad host four great games at the EBB Stadium before the end of 2016 – including a huge clash with Manchester United and games against two of Europe’s most prestigious and renowned academies!
The Blues host the Red Devils in a Premier League 2 fixture on Friday 9 December, and also begin their Premier League International Cup campaign later this month.
All three International Cup fixtures are free admission for all supporters, including the visit of the Feyenoord Academy, renowned as the best in the Netherlands and which has in the past produced players of the calibre of Robin van Persie, Bruno Martins Indi, Giorginio Wijnaldum and current Feyenoord first-team head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
That is followed, on Friday 16 December, by another of Europe’s most revered Academies, in GNK Dinamo Zagreb from Croatia. The first-team are current national champions, with an Academy whose alumni include Luka Modric, Zvonimir Boban, Robert Prosinecki, Dario Simic and Vedran Corluka.
Swansea City are the opposition in Chelsea’s final Premier League International Cup group game, three days before Christmas.
