🔵 Chelsea announce one more pre-season fixture

Chelsea have added one more friendly match to their pre-season schedule. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side will be taking on Championship side Bournemouth on Tuesday 27 July at the Vitality Stadium with a 7.45pm (9.45 pm EAT) kick-off time.

Away fans will be allowed to attend the game, with a full capacity permitted for this particular fixture. 

Bournemouth, who last featured in the Premier League in the 2019/20 season, finished sixth in the Championship last season and lost to Brentford in the play-off semi-finals.

The Blues will be reunited with former midfielder Scott Parker, who was appointed the Cherries' head coach last month, days after leaving Fulham. 

Chelsea will also face Arsenal, at the Emirates, and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in the Mind Series pre-season fixtures.
