Chelsea‘s 2022-23 pre-season dates have been revealed as the team will be playing in the United States of America.
Chelsea will be hoping to compete well in the Premier League in the 2022-23 season. The pre-season will begin in July 2022, which is the first phase in their preparations for the new season, and it will take place in the United States of America.
Thomas Tuchel’s side began the season as one of the favourites to win the league; however, injuries and other issues derailed their hopes of capturing the league title after an incredible previous season in which they won the UEFA Champions League.
Things didn’t work out for them as their form plummeted in December 2021. This with the flurry of activity off the pitch saw many Blues fans wanting the 2021/22 season to end quickly.
With new owners and a summer break, excitement is at an all-time high for Chelsea’s 2022-23 Pre-season.
This is what we know about their schedule and opponents so far:
When does Chelsea’s 2022-23 season start?
- Everton vs Chelsea (17:30 BST) on Saturday August 6th 2022.
Where are Chelsea going for 2022/23 pre-season?
Chelsea has confirmed that they will travel to the United States in July for the ‘Clash of Nations’ tour. The tour is part of the FC Series, which includes clubs from all over the world.
The Blues will play two unnamed international opponents around the United States before facing Arsenal in a London derby in Orlando, where the “Florida Cup” will be on the line.
Chelsea technical and performance advisor Petr Cech said: “We’ve always had a lot of success on our US tours, taking so many fans to the stadiums and giving them the opportunity to witness Chelsea FC play live.”
“We’ve happily created a large fan base in the United States, and we’ve seen that audience grow year after year.”
A statement from the club reads: “The club will join under new management. The Blues will only travel if the club’s sale has been completed and the club is no longer subject to UK government penalties. If the game is cancelled, ticket refunds will be granted.”
