The veteran Australian goalkeeper joined the Blues this week on a one-year deal and is keen to get straight into another bout of preseason training in his 20th season playing in Europe.
"Asia is such a big continent and they are absolutely mad about the Premier League," he told the club's official website.
"For many of those players, coming up against Chelsea will be a dream come true and they'll be doing everything they possibly can to try and make a mark.
"It will be a test for us but also a great opportunity for a lot of the local guys to get a chance against Chelsea.
"I'm looking forward to playing football again and getting stuck into preseason at such a fantastic club. It's extremely exciting for me.
"Hard work is what you do as a footballer. You hit the ground running, it's all about hard work and you don't get something for nothing. That's why I'm still playing at this tender young age of mine. I enjoy pushing myself."
During their 2013 tour, the reigning Europa League champions take on the Singha All-Stars in Bangkok, Thailand on July 17, a Malaysia XI in Kuala Lumpur on July 21 and BNI Indonesia All-Stars in Jakarta on July 25.
