Made in Chelsea stars Andy Jordan and Louise Thompson celebrated the UEFA Women's Champions League final coming to Chelsea FC's Stamford Bridge by battling it out to see who could drum up the most support for their team.
On Thursday 23rd May, VfL Wolfsburg will take on Olympique Lyonnais in the biggest event in European women's club football and Andy Jordan took over a local pub to generate support for the French side while Louise Thompson has been encouraging her Twitter followers to get behind Wolfsburg.
Andy Jordan, at the Putney-based Larrick Arms, theming itself as French for the day in support of Lyon, said: "I'm a huge football fan and a regular at Stamford Bridge, I was obsessed with Gianfranco Zola when I was a kid. The UEFA Women's Champions League final is the pinnacle of women's club football globally and it is a privilege to have the game at Stamford Bridge, so close to home. I'm really looking forward to this week's game and seeing the best players in the world in action.
"I was born in France, so I had to adopt Lyon. I fly there every year to go skiing, too, so I'm hoping Megan Rapinoe and the girls bring home the trophy again. Besides, a German team is winning the men's trophy so we can't have them win it all.
"It was really good to see the locals at the Larrick Inn get so enthusiastic for Lyon. Everyone put in a really good effort and had a great evening. I can't wait for Thursday now."
Louise Thompson, said: "I'm rooting for Wolfsburg. They put the last English club out of the tournament so I'm hoping they win it all. There is a bit of a rivalry going at the Made in Chelsea set, so I'm hoping I can get the bragging rights."
The couple are competing to see which one can generate more social media support for their adopted team ahead of Thursday's final.
Andy Jordan added: "There is nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition in a relationship. I just hope Lyon win on Thursday."
The 2013 UEFA Women's Champions League final returns to London for the second time in three years after Fulham FC's Craven Cottage hosted the 2011 showpiece. Chelsea FC's Stamford Bridge, home of the 2012 UEFA Champions League winners and 2013 Europa League winners, will stage the 2013 event.
