Singer Capital Markets Partnership Day 2024

Following on from the success of our Partnership Day in 2023, Singer Capital Markets were delighted to bring the event back for our charity partners in 2024, but even bigger and better than before.

This year’s partnership day brought together 30 girls from our charity partners, IntoUniversity and Greenhouse Sports, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Chelsea FC’s impressive training grounds in Cobham, Surrey.

The event provided the girls with a fun and interactive coaching session with Chelsea FC Academy and Foundations coaches, which allowed them to develop their footballing skills whilst learning more about the sport and how they develop talent at Chelsea FC. During the training session, the girls had a surprise visit from Chelsea FC Women and England Lioness legend, Katie Chapman, who took part in the session and gave the girls some tips and advice on her career and how she became one of the most impressive female footballers of her generation.

Following the training session, the girls were taken to see the Chelsea Women’s team in action at their home game at Kingsmeadow Stadium, Kingston, against Bristol City Women. Before the game, the girls were able to meet two Chelsea Women players as well as being able to go pitch side to see the women warming up.

The Chelsea Women’s team put on an impressive display and came out with an 8-0 win, which was made even more special for their coach, Emma Hayes, as it was her last home game for the Club before she departs at the end of the season.

Commenting on the Partnership Day, Marcus Watkins from IntoUniversity said:

“We’re really lucky here at IntoUniversity that Singer provided this opportunity to come to Chelsea training grounds. Somewhere, ordinarily, we would never be able to go. Just looking at the girls they’re really happy, being inspired and that’s fantastic.”

Lucio Semedo, a sports coach from Greenhouse Sports commented:

“First of all the girls are very impressed with the grounds. For them, they’d never get opportunities like this and the fact they’re here is a great experience for the girls and they’ll get a lot out of this that, hopefully, they can take back to school and talk about it, and keep playing sport.”

Katie Chapman, ex-Chelsea FC Women and England Lioness said about the day:

“I think to come here and just to see them play with a smile on their face I think is the most important thing for me. It’s about enjoying football and loving playing the game. Some of the quality out there and the skills and seeing them really working hard is great to see and also great to see them enjoying it.”
