Chelsea will kick off their pre-season with a friendly in Australia at the brand new Optus Stadium, as they take on Perth Glory on Monday 23rd July before they compete in the International Champions Cup. Our final pre-season fixture takes place just two days after the Community Shield, so you can expect a heavily rotated side.
Arsenal said they would still play in Stockholm that day, with their opponents to be announced at a later date.
Chelsea, meanwhile, will also take on Manchester City at Wembley in the Community Shield and then Lyon at Stamford Bridge in August.
However, concerns over stadium availability and the Spanish club's withdrawal as a result of Europa League commitments forced a change to the schedule.
