Chelsea announce pre-season fixtures, Blues to face Arsenal in Dublin

The all-Premier League clash is part of the International Champions Cup tournament, and the Stamford Bridge outfit will also take on Inter and Lyon as part of the tournament.

But Chelsea's FA Cup success means they will now play in the Community Shield against Manchester City on August 5.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to significantly bolster their squads ahead of next season.

On July 14, an Arsenal XI will face Boredom Wood before travelling to Singapore where they will play Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain on July 26 and July 28 respectively.

Club ambassadors for both Chelsea and Arsenal were in place to help announce the showpiece at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, with Tore Andre Flo and Ray Parlour both present for the reveal. Our final pre-season fixture takes place just two days after the Community Shield, so you can expect a heavily rotated side.

Chelsea had previously announced plans to play International Champions Cup fixtures in Poland and Sweden.
