A strong squad of 29 players is travelling to America for our pre-season tour.

The Blues will head Stateside today, with our first destination across the pond being Los Angeles which Thomas Tuchel and his players will call home for the next week as we take in a summer training camp.

We then head to Las Vegas, where we will face Club America in our first pre-season game on Saturday 16 July at the Allegiant Stadium. This is followed up with another FC Series tie, against Charlotte FC, on Wednesday 20 July at the Bank of America Stadium.

Before heading back to the UK at the end of the tour, Chelsea will take on Arsenal in a Stateside London derby at the Camping World Stadium in Florida on Saturday 23 July.

Tickets for our games are still available to purchase here

Also included in the travelling party are German duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, while the likes of Thiago Silva, Mason Mount and Cesar Azpilicueta all make the trip.
