​Premier League powerhouse Chelsea Football Club will play Perth Glory at Optus Stadium on July 23, 2018.

The Chelsea Football Club match will be the first international soccer club appearance at the stadium and an Australian exclusive.

Chelsea FC’s visit to Perth will be a windfall for tourism, with thousands of interstate and international visitors expected to travel for the match, injecting millions of dollars into the economy through visitor spend. 

Chelsea Football Club have been one of the most successful English Premier League clubs of the past 15 years, winning 13 major titles since 2002. In 2009/10, Chelsea won both the Premier League and the FA Cup. Chelsea were also Premier League champions in 2014/15. 

The deal, struck by Tourism WA in partnership with Perth Stadium Operator VenuesLive, includes other activities by the club in Perth including open training sessions and grassroots training clinics.

Soccer is immensely popular in the Eastern States and in some of WA’s key Asian tourism markets including Singapore, Malaysia and China. This is a rare opportunity for fans in all these areas to visit WA to see one of the most successful Premier League teams of the past 15 years.

It will also expose Perth to millions around the world through news coverage and social media.
