Chelsea take lead from Barcelona in Champions League

Barcelona were one of the first big clubs to carry a charity logo on the club shirts and Chelsea has made history by becoming the first English club to feature  a charity logo on their Champions League shirts.

Right To Play, an group that uses sport and play to help tackle disease, poverty and conflict in 20 countries around the world will appear on the back of Chelsea's shirts for the rest of the 2011/12 Champions League campaign.

The charity appeared on Chelsea's Champions League match against Belgian side KRC Genk last night.

Right To Play president and chief executive Johann Koss commented

“I am excited about this new commitment by Chelsea Football Club. By featuring our logo on their Champions League jersey, Chelsea and their sponsors are truly demonstrating their commitment to Right To Play. This will spread the message that sport and play have the power to improve the lives of children living in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world. I am thrilled that Right To Play’s partnership with Chelsea continues to grow and I would like to thank Chelsea and their sponsors Samsung and Adidas for their support.”
