Arsenal and Chelsea will play a pre-season friendly in Dublin later this summer. Our final pre-season fixture takes place just two days after the Community Shield, so you can expect a heavily rotated side.

The fixture was announced earlier today and will form part of the International Champions Cup which takes place at various global locations every summer.

"It's a great honour to be travelling around the world with Arsenal Football Club", Ray Parlour said following the announcement.

They have also announced a friendly against Lyon at Stamford Bridge on August 7, two days after the Community Shield against Manchester City at Wembley.

Chelsea play Inter Milan at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice on July 28 before taking on Arsenal at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin in the European leg of the International Champions Cup.

A game against Sevilla was originally set for July 28 in Warsaw, while the friendly with Lyon was previously set to be hosted in Gothenburg.

Information from ESPN FC's Chelsea correspondent Liam Twomey was used in this report.
