Sport Chelsea to host LGBTQ+ seminar for London clubs
How Tuchel has made Chelsea stars with bruised egos thrive again
Lampard made mistakes during his final half-season at Stamford Bridge and by the time he was sacked by Roman Abramovich at the end of January, the former Chelsea midfielder had lost the dressing room.While the club legend was sacked in January of this year with his side in a disappointing ninth place in the table, he did provide his successor Thomas Tuchel with the platform to take them to Champions League glory and beyond.
Chelsea will next month host an event bringing London clubs together to discuss how football can do more to support LGBTQ+ fans.
The event, 'From Allyship To Action', will take place on Monday 4 October and be attended by representatives from top-flight and Championship clubs, along with the FA and Premier League.
Members of LGBTQ+ fan groups from the clubs will also be present, along with organisations such as Kick It Out and Stonewall FC.
A club statement said: "Chelsea FC is committed to ensuring our club is a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQ+ people, and their friends and families, and is delighted to be able to work alongside other London clubs and football bodies, through this seminar, to address homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and stop hate across the game."

Crystal Palace head of human resources Julie Brown said: "Crystal Palace is incredibly proud of our diverse local community and fanbase, and we are committed to continue to work with our supporters to ensure that we are the most inclusive club that we can be.
"We're thankful to the other clubs and organisations taking part in this seminar, and determined to continue to make progress in eradicating hate from our game."
174 Long-Forgotten, Dust-Covered Classic Cars Found Sitting in a London Warehouse
A collection of 174 classic cars has been sitting, covered in dust in a London warehouse for 10 years. Now they're heading to auction.The collection is the result of a local businessman's decade-long passion for buying vehicles and then storing them in a warehouse rented from the town council. After the council asked for the space back, the businessman, who wishes to remain anonymous, couldn't find a similar space for the price he had been paying the town. So, he decided to sell all of the cars.
