Chelsea announce that they will face Perth Glory in Australia as part of their pre-season preparations for the next campaign.

Chelsea have announced that they will take part in the first-ever football match to be staged at the Optus Stadium in Perth.

Last year, Chelsea revealed that they intended to visit Western Australia ahead of the start of the next campaign, and the Premier League club are now in a position to confirm one of their fixtures.

The new 60,000-seater Optus Stadium will play host to Chelsea's encounter with Perth Glory, with the contest taking place on Monday, July 23.

Perth currently sit in eighth place in the A-League table, and are captained by former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Republic of Ireland striker Andy Keogh.

Chelsea will announce further matches for July's schedule at a later date.
