At breakfast the group slowly showed up one by one. One of the boys had his eyes opened slightly more than the other, but in the end everyone was well on time for departing to the Stamford Bridge of Chelsea stadium. The stands, press room and changing rooms, dugouts (with music towards the field) and the catacombs and fan shops were fun to see. A number of the boys went to the FA-cup match of Fulham after.
All the boys were well on time at the station (credits for the boys!) and almost everyone still had their train ticket. Once seated, the boys took another drink and played some cards. The 3 hours have flown by very fast. Michel was already waiting for us in Rotterdam with the Vios players’ bus to transfer us back to VELO. We arrived there at around 22:00, we said goodbye and exchanged a thank you to the organization. To Travel Agency Uniglobe: thanks for the excellent organization and support. We loved that Raymond, on behalf of the board at the last minute, still had the chance to join. That is how we immediately got to know him better.
