Frank Lampard’s first Premier League home game as Chelsea head coach will be televised as we host Leicester City live on Sky Sports on Sunday 18 August...
It will see Lampard go head to head with former Blues coach Brendan Rodgers and his side, who finished last season in fine form. It will go on sale to members, one ticket per person, from next Wednesday 10 July.
The match is one of several Chelsea games moved in August and September to accommodate TV rights holders and will kick off at 4.30pm, the same time as our opener away at Manchester United on Sunday 11 August. Both games will be on Sky Sports.
We travel to Norwich on Saturday 24 August in an early kick-off for our first live BT Sport game of the season.
Our final amendment for August and September comes when we host Liverpool on Sunday 22 September live on Sky Sports at 4.30pm. That will be a repeat of the UEFA Super Cup, which takes place in Istanbul on Wednesday 14 August.
