Chelsea FC have setup a football school in the Regnum Carya Gold & Spa Resort, Antalya, Turkey.

The football school was setup by the Chelsea FC Foundation and will open in April 2015.

Chelsea will provide coaches for both hotel guests and football fans wishing to sign up to the weekly programs that will be organised.

The courses will involve a minimum of 16-person groups managed by one head trainer and two assistant trainers at the Regnum Football Fields.

The hotel complex has three 68 X 105 football fields that meet FIFA standards.

The football pitches and facilities are often used by clubs from across Europe over the winter transfer break.

The training camp has a 320 m2 club building, two separate dressing rooms and two storages areas.

The Chelsea FC Foundation has setup International Soccer Schools around far east Asia and Europe.

Chelsea have also been linked with setting up a football academy project with Süper Lig outfit Beşiktaş.
