Chelsea Football Club is pleased to announce our first two fixtures of the summer, with pre-season games against Wycombe Wanderers and AFC Wimbledon confirmed.
A Chelsea XI, comprising a mixture of first-team and Academy players, will travel to League Two Wycombe’s Adams Park on Wednesday 16 July for Matt Bloomfield’s testimonial.
The game will kick-off at 7.45pm to celebrate Bloomfield’s career with the Chairboys, which started in December 2003. The former Ipswich Town trainee has gone on to make more than 300 appearances for Gareth Ainsworth’s side.
Our second fixture, with a similar squad due to senior players being on World Cup duty, will take place three days later at 3pm on Saturday 19 July at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, formerly known as Kingsmeadow, home of AFC Wimbledon and Kingstonian.
AFC finished last season two places above Wycombe in 20th position in League Two, and are managed by former Wimbledon player Neal Ardley.
Ticket details for both matches will be announced in due course, while they will also be shown live on Chelsea TV.
