Chelsea Village plc and Total Network Solutions have cemented a ground breaking partnership that could revolutionise both the footballing and business worlds.
Ken Bates, Chairman of Chelsea Village plc and Mike Harris, Managing Director of Total Network Solutions were looking to establish a business partnership that would lead to the sharing of business opportunities. While Ken Bates heads the successful Chelsea Village plc, Total Network Solutions is the number one supplier of voice and data communications.
During discussions it became apparent that the two had far more than business in common, for both own successful football clubs. Therefore, the most logical scenario to further cement this partnership would be to twin not only the two businesses but also the two football clubs.
Mike Harris is delighted at the possibilities that working with Chelsea will bring.
He said: We are pleased that one of England's top teams, has recognised the value of the National Welsh Premier League. We see many benefits, including player development, where Chelsea's younger players can play top flight National and European football, and in exchange, players in Wales can gain exposure to the English League system.

Exciting opportunity
All of us at our company are also very excited at opportunity to raise the profile of our company through working alongside Chelsea Village plc at their prestigious office facilities in central London.
Ken Bates, Chairman of Chelsea FC and Chelsea Village plc added: We very much look forward to working with TNS and Mike Harris, their brilliant, innovative Chairman.
In season 2001/2, Chelsea finished in sixth place and were runners up to Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Total Network Solutions FC also enjoyed a fruitful season earning qualification for the UEFA Cup from their second spot finish in the League.
The relationship is not only the first of its kind but it also underlines Chelsea's commitment to supporting grass roots football.
Both parties view the partnership as the way forward in football with player development of homegrown British talent a priority. Now Chelsea's academy players will have the opportunity to gain invaluable experience from playing top-flight football in the Welsh league.
Likewise for Total Network Solutions their players will also be able to gain experience of how a top Premiership club operates. The partnership was kicked-off by Chelsea travelling to North Wales to face Total Network Solutions FC at the Recreation Ground on Friday 9th August.
This was Chelsea's final pre-season match in preparation for their 2002/2003 Premiership challenge and marked the official twinning of Chelsea FC and Total Network Solutions.
