Perth Glory have confirmed the club's prestige friendly against English Premier League giants Chelsea at Optus Stadium will take place on Monday 23 July.
The date was revealed by WA Tourism Minister Paul Papalia at a press conference held at Optus Stadium earlier today.
Chelsea were represented by their former goalkeeper and Socceroos legend Mark Schwarzer, while ex-club skipper and current Head of Football Jacob Burns and CEO Peter Filopoulos headed up Glory's delegation at the well-attended event.
"This international friendly between Perth Glory and Chelsea, is a huge coup for Western Australian and football fans throughout Australia and Asia," Filopoulos said.
"It is also an enormous opportunity for our club to play in front of a large attendance at the new, world class Optus Stadium in its rectangular configuration against a prestigious international football club in Chelsea.
"The scheduling of this game is ideally placed and the club will be using it as a platform from which to build its pre-season preparations for the 2018 FFA Cup and 2018/19 Hyundai A-League season."
Perth Glory members have an opportunity to be first in line for tickets to this game with a pre-sale window set to commence on Monday 12 February.
