Former Chelsea goalkeeper and current technical and performance advisor Petr Cech is to play competitive ice hockey.

The Chelsea legend will play as goalie (netminder) for Guildford Phoenix which is located close to where Cech lives. When his Chelsea Football Club schedule allows, he is ready to help them in their league games.

Cech grew up in the Czech Republic where ice hockey is extremely popular, and the 37-year-old even contemplated the sport before going pro as a footballer, and he is excited at the opportunity to live out his dream in ice hockey.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to play with the Phoenix to get the match experience,” Cech said.

“I hope I can help this young team to achieve their goals for the season and try to win as many games as possible when I have the chance to play.

“After 20 years of professional football this is going to be a wonderful experience for me to play the game I loved to watch and play as a kid.”
