Chelsea pre-season fixtures 2018-19 & complete Premier League fixture schedule

Jun 14, 2018 4:00:00 AMICC 2017
The Blues head to Australia as well as France and Ireland on their pre-season tour ahead of the new campaign

Chelsea return to the Asia-Pacific region with a fixture against Perth Glory in Australia to get their preparations for the 2018-19 campaign under way.

The Blues will then face some of Europe's biggest clubs as part of the International Champions' Cup in a number of venues around the continent.

With the World Cup ending just eight days before their first fixture against Perth, it leaves Chelsea with very little time to fully prepare – though it does give the opportunity to get back into the fold in an energising manner.

Goal brings you your complete guide to the Blues' 2018-19 pre-season and Premier League fixtures, with dates, venues and all you need to know about the preparations.

Chelsea's pre-season schedule involves some entertaining clashes, including an exciting match against Premier League rivals Arsenal, as well as European giants Inter and Lyon.

While the likes of fellow Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool playing in North America, Chelsea will instead be heading down under and to Europe.

The first game of their pre-season tour sees them play Perth Glory in a 60,000-seater stadium on July 23 at Optus Stadium in an Australia-exclusive friendly.

The west London side will then head to Europe to begin their International Champions Cup campaign against Inter at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice, before facing Arsenal at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin shortly after.

They conclude their pre-season preparation with a home friendly against Lyon, but not before they take on Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley.
