Chelsea FC Women to film season-long documentary

Chelsea FC, in conjunction with London-based production company Fulwell 73, will create a behind-the-scenes documentary following the women’s side during the 2019-20 campaign.

Chelsea finished the 2018-19 season outside the Uefa Women’s Champions League qualification spots and finished the season without domestic or continental silverware. The documentary series entitled Flying High will chronicle the Blues efforts to win domestic honors again.

Fulwell 73 is the production unit behind CBS’ The Late, Late Show With James Corden, a popular late-night show in the US, and Corden is a partner in the company.

Guy Laurence, Chelsea chief executive, said: ‘We are delighted Fulwell 73 approached us to make this documentary about Chelsea FC Women. We are extremely proud of the team and everything it has achieved in recent years, and look forward to showcasing the incredible talent and commitment of our players and staff to a worldwide audience.”
