English Premier League leaders Chelsea have confirmed that they will visit Singapore for the first time this summer as part of their pre-season preparations.
The Premier League leaders will take on Bayern Munich (July 25) and Inter Milan (July 29) at the 55,000-seater National Stadium in the Lion City as part of the annual International Champions Cup tournament.
The Blues will begin their tour of Asia on July 22 in Beijing, where the Bird’s Nest stadium will play host to a friendly with old rivals Arsenal.
“I am very happy we have our pre-season tour plans for next season in place,” manager Antonio Conte told the club website.
“Travelling to Singapore will give us excellent facilities to play and train, and we will face strong opposition. This is all good for my team and will help us to prepare for the next season.
