We created the Black & Blue Legends event to celebrate Black History Month at Stamford Bridge in October 2018, celebrating some of the early pioneers who followed our founder to Chelsea. The event was hosted by club legend Neil “Spy” Barnett and supported by our Patron Omid Dijalili. Players that featured on the panel were Eddie Newton, Ken Monkou, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Andy Myers and Paul Elliot MBE.
We staged the event again in 2019 with Omid and Neil again who were joined by new additions Michael Duberry, Frank Sinclair, DJ Trevor Nelson and Mr Cee the comedian. We were delighted that Paul Elliott, the PFA & The FA were also able to support and join us. Special guests included Chelsea Football Club Chairman Bruce Buck and the Hudson-Odoi family with Callum putting in a brief appearance.
Our future plans include staging Black and Blue Legends as a charity fundraiser in partnership with Chelsea Football Club. Chelsea is now one of the greatest clubs in the world with black players have played a huge part in it’s success.
