The Copthorne Hotel at Chelsea Football Club, will be open again to support NHS staff during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement published on the teams official website it was revealed that club owner Roman Abramovich will be covering the costs of providing the accommodation, which includes bed and breakfast.
It follows a similar initiative that was rolled out last March when the UK entered into its first national lockdown.
According to Chelsea FC the rooms which are managed by Millennium Hotels and Resorts will be initially available until the next government review in mid-February.
Chelsea FC said: “Many of the medical staff will be working long hours and may not be able to travel home or would have to make long commutes at a time when the virus is so transmissible.
“The rooms will be initially available until the next government review in mid-February. Millennium Hotels and Resorts, who manage the hotel, are supportive and assisting the club in providing this service to the NHS.”
