Chelsea and Arsenal are set to meet tonight in a key Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge. 

The two sides will lock horns once again at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando on Saturday 23 July in a pre-season friendly clash.

The Florida Cup will, however, be up for grabs that evening, in what is dubbed the ‘Clash of Nations’ tour.

Chelsea will also feature in two other international matches across the US during the FC Series – on 16 July and 20 July – with locations and opponents to be announced.

“We’ve always had a lot of success on our US tours, taking so many fans to the stadiums and giving them the opportunity to see Chelsea FC play live,” said the club’s technical and performance advisor Petr Cech.

Adding: “We have a huge fan base in the US that we’ve proudly built, and we’ve seen that fanbase getting bigger and bigger every year. We are delighted to go and play in the FC Series and the Florida Cup, where in total we will have three competitive games to prepare well for our upcoming season and to show what we can do to the American audience,”

The Blues will, however, only travel if the sale of the club has been completed and all sanctions lifted.
