Battersea Park I 28th May 2017
Having dominated English football this season, Antonio Conte’s side are proud holders of a host of titles. The Blues have recently made history. Chelsea have just won their sixth English league title.
At the close of the season, the 51st edition of the Chelsea FC « PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARDS » 2017 was the perfect opportunity to celebrate this victory as a family. Every year at this time, the Blues unite their players, staff and fans at a gala dinner. The highlight of the evening was the “Player of the Year Award” which, as expected, went to Eden Hazard, who has enjoyed a stunning 2016/17 season. Eden was also designated as the Goal of the Year. On this occasion, a Classic Fusion Chelsea FC was
offered to the Player of the Year.
The event also saw tribute paid to John Terry, the club captain who now departs after 22 years of service. Since making his debut in 1998, he has played more than 700 matches for the Blues, captaining them to every major domestic and European honour.
