Chelsea confirm plans for Champions League trophy unveiling against Tottenham

Chelsea have confirmed they will parade the Champions League trophy before their clash with Tottenham Hotspur on August 4.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Blues have been unable to hold a traditional open-top-bus parade.

"The pre-match entertainment will culminate in the Champions League trophy we won in May, by beating Manchester City 1-0 on that special night in Porto, being paraded around Stamford Bridge for the first time," Chelsea wrote on the club website.

"It will be carried around the pitch by one member of Thomas Tuchel's squad, who will also be taking part in a pitchside question and answer session about that fantastic European triumph.

"Before that, our ever-popular mascots Stamford and Bridget will be welcoming fans to SW6 while being joined around the stadium by football freestylers, face painters, balloon artists and a magician."
