The Samsung-Chelsea FC Youth Football Camp, which became a global program in 2011, has been an important component of Samsung’s commitment to children’s health and well-being. Approximately 2,000 children from around the world have benefitted through this program.
Another example of Samsung’s commitment to children that’s specific to the U.S. is a program called Ready, Set, Gold!. It combines the excitement of the Olympics and the importance of goal setting to help children combat childhood obesity and diabetes by pairing public schools with Olympians and Paralympians who visit schools several times a year to provide real-life examples of how to be successful and healthy in sport and in life.
The Chelsea Football Club conducted Chelsea FC Youth Football Camp at Long Island University in Brooklyn on July 20 and July 21. The event was free and participants received jerseys and giveaways including certificates, water bottles, pins, USB drives with their training photos, and key rings. The Chelsea FC team played an exhibition game versus Paris Saint Germain at Yankee Stadium on July 22.
