Watch Chelsea’s first pre-season fixture live!

Frank Lampard’s Blues are in pre-season action this weekend when they take on Brighton on Saturday, with the game set to be shown live on The 5th Stand app and on this website.

We travel to the south coast to face the Seagulls at 3pm, with a small number of home fans allowed in to watch the game as part of a government-backed trial to begin the process of allowing supporters back into stadiums. The game will be shown via a single-camera output so may not appear as optimised as other regular streamed games.

While Chelsea fans can’t attend, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! We will be showing the full 90 minutes on our app and website for free and it could mean a first outing in a Blues shirt for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Other new signings, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva are unlikely to feature but we could see returning loanee Ethan Ampadu back in a Chelsea shirt. It will be the first time that the Blues take to the pitch since the end of the 2019/20 season, nearly three weeks ago.

When is the game?

The game is on Saturday, 29 August and kicks off at 3pm (UK time).

Can I go to the game?

No, Chelsea supporters will not be permitted at the stadium and entry will be denied.

How can I watch the game live?

The single camera live stream will be available globally and free of charge on The 5th Stand app and the Chelsea website.
