ChelseaFC Soccer School (HK) and The Link Management Limited have established the ‘Blue Pitches’ in Lok Fu, which is the only and the first in Asia, with the aim of getting more young Hong Kong people taking part in sport. The pitches are free to use to help get young people more active and make a real difference to local communities.
All pitch is, of course, blue in colour, inspired by the ‘Reflex’ blue in our Chelsea kit and are made from a high specification astro turf - a replica of a natural grass surface. It is made of the most recent, third generation LIMONTA astro-turf, which composes of GEO recycled materials to decrease pollution to the environment.
The pitches will be used as key locations for CSS(HK)'s programs, which provide sporting opportunities for local young people whilst tackling issues such as crime, gangs and anti social behaviour. Local schools will also have the opportunity to benefit from after school coaching sessions and training days.
Not only will local coaches be encouraged to attend the sites to spot talent and encourage them to join local clubs and sporting organisations. It’s a really great chance for our own community coaches to work with local kids and who knows, spot some future stars for the boys in blue!
