Chelsea extend partnership with AFC

Reigning Premier League champions, Chelsea, have announced an extension to the partnership deal with the Asian Rugby Confe­dera­tion (AFC) with it being an Official Development Partner of Vision China (part of the Vision Asia project), which is a project devised by the AFC President Mohammed bin Hammam, which aims to raise standards of football within the schools and amateur teams for both men and women.

The deal, which began in 2007, is now extended until 2015 and comes ahead of the clubs second pre-season tour to Asia, where they will be visiting Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong. Chelsea remains the only European team to work beside the AFC on grassroots projects.
