Speech – Mr Leslie Santos
Technical Director of ChelseaFC Soccer School (Hong Kong)
Honourable guests, media friends, ladies and gentlemen,
Today I am proud to stand in front of everybody and announce that we finally become an international brand. Having operated Santos Soccer Schools for the past four years, I always have the faith and belief that I could build up Santos Soccer School and develop it further.
Football is the number one sport in Hong Kong. ChelseaFC Soccer School (Hong Kong) will be offering football skill training to not just for kids but also adults. This is a Chelsea Soccer School and kids can benefit learning and improving their football skills through courses designed by the Club. Together with my colleagues, we have visited Chelsea Football Club and their coaching facilities and are very impressed with it.
I shall ensure everyone that I will continue my efforts to serve the community by offering various charity programs through the soccer school.
There is a long list of thank you note. First, I am truly thankful to Chelsea Football Club for their trust and support; giving us the first Chelsea Soccer School in Asia. Our appreciation goes to ProEvents for their introduction. Big thank you to all our partners Chevalier Group, adidas, Ezshopnet and on.cc,. Also, to our team of colleagues who worked so hard over the years to achieve this today.
Last but not least and most importantly, thank you to all parents and children who have been supporting us all these years. These children are the driving force behind all of us.
Once again, this is a proud day for me and all my colleagues and to the football development in Hong Kong. Thank you very much.
