2018 FA Cup to visit Perth

Football fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with Chelsea FC’s FA Cup when it visits Perth with the team for their match against Perth Glory on Monday 23 July at Optus Stadium.

As part of the pre-match activities, the magnificent FA Cup will be on display at Optus Stadium for fans to see and photograph for the first time since the Club recently won at Wembley Stadium.

Final tickets for the highly anticipated match at Optus Stadium on 23 July are currently on sale. The Chelsea squad will be announced in the weeks ahead of the match and several stars from their FA Cup winning team are expected to be named.

This match will also be the first for the Perth Glory team under newly appointed Manager, Tony Popovic.

“It’s certainly going to be a fantastic occasion for the Club. To play together for the first time in front of what is sure to be a capacity crowd, in a magnificent new Stadium and against the 2018 FA Cup winners is something we can’t wait to experience.

We know that Chelsea will field an outstanding side. We are closely monitoring the selection of national teams ahead of the FIFA World Cup and many of the Chelsea stars are sitting out the tournament which means they will be vying for selection to play in Perth.

It’s an outstanding opportunity for the Glory fans to see our team play at home against one of the most celebrated football teams in the world, we have no doubt Chelsea will be fielding a star-studded team when they run onto the Optus Stadium pitch.”

Chelsea FC is certainly no stranger to FA Cup trophies and their 2018 win marked the eighth time they have won this prestigious silverware.

Perth is set to turn blue and celebrate all things football when the mighty Chelsea team visits Perth for the first time since 1974.

The match between Chelsea FC and Perth Glory will kick-off at 7.30pm (WST) and will be broadcast nationally, live on SBS.

Travel packages are on sale and final tickets are available from $49 and $99 for families.
