The friendly is scheduled for August 1, which means it will be right before the start of the new Premier League season. Both teams should have relatively strong squads for the fixture.
This game was meant to happen in Stockholm a few days later. But Chelsea's participation in the Community Shield meant a rethink.
Now it will be played on August 1 in Dublin. Ticket prices have been released for the game and are as follows: £54.25 for adults and £13.50 for under-16s.
