The Month Ahead: Chelsea in August

The new season is nearly upon us and here we detail everything that is coming up for Chelsea teams in August...


Men

The Blues begin our 2019/20 Premier League campaign with a mouthwatering trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, one of the teams we beat to a top-four finish last term. 

The highlight of the opening weekend kicks off at 4.30pm this Sunday 11 August. 

Hot on the heels of that game is the Super Cup and a chance to win the first silverware of the season. We play Liverpool at Besiktas Park in Istanbul on Wednesday 14 August, kick-off 8pm UK time. 

We're then back in England and back at home for our first fixture at Stamford Bridge under the management of Frank Lampard. Leicester City are the visitors for a 4.30pm start on Sunday 18 August. It promises to be a special day. 

Our second away trip of the season is to newly promoted Norwich City. The Canaries welcome us to Carrow Road on Saturday 24 August with a 12.30pm kick-off. 

Another team fresh to the Premier League are Sheffield United and they will be our final opponents in August on Saturday 31 August. Stamford Bridge is the venue and 3pm the start time. 

Also in August is the closing of the transfer window for Premier League and Championship clubs (this Thursday at 5pm UK time) and the draw for the group stage of the Champions League, which takes place on Thursday 29 August. 


Women

Chelsea Women's season starts against Tottenham next month but they have a trio of friendlies in the coming weeks, the first of which is against Montpellier in France tomorrow. We will play another friendly on Thursday, opponents to be confirmed, before taking on the Israeli national team on August 20.
