ARSENAL vs CHELSEA – China – July 22th 2017

We will play Chelsea in a pre-season friendly at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing this summer.Our first meeting with our London rivals outside the UK will take place on Saturday, July 22.This will be our second trip to Beijing and our third visit to China in recent years – we faced Manchester City at the Bird’s Nest in 2012 and Hangzhou Greentown in 2011.* Please be aware this is not our full and final pre-season schedule. We are still working on other games which will be announced in due course.

Chelsea will play Arsenal in a London derby with a difference at China’s national stadium this summer.

This announcement comes just hours before the Gunners visit Stamford Bridge as we seek to extend our lead at the top of the Premier League table.

This summer we will visit Asia to prepare for the 2017/18 campaign and play Arsenal on 22 July at Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium. This will be the first time the two sides have met outside the British Isles.

We last faced Arsenal outside London in the 2007 League Cup final in Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, when Theo Walcott’s opener was cancelled out by a Didier Drogba brace to win the game for the Blues.

The Bird’s Nest, which opened for the 2008 Olympics, has a capacity of 80,000 and we are looking forward to an incredible atmosphere.

It will be our first visit to mainland China since that Olympic summer of 2008, when we won matches in Guanghzou and Macau. We also lifted the Premier League Asia Trophy in Hong Kong in 2011.

Antonio Conte said: ‘In this moment we are focused on winning a very important game against Arsenal in the league but we are happy to be travelling to China for another exciting match in the summer.

‘I have seen already the passion our supporters have for Chelsea here in England and last summer in America, and I believe our fans in China will show the same intensity when we are in Beijing.’

Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck added: ‘We’re thrilled to be announcing this match in China against one of our biggest London rivals.

‘It will be an important step in helping Antonio and his staff ready the team for next season, and we hope it will provide some reward for our Chinese fans who show huge commitment all year round to support Chelsea.’

The match will be screened live on and Chelsea TV, with Ticket News to follow soon.

CHINA CUP – January 2017

Soccer’s first China Cup is just six months away. The Chinese real estate and entertainment giant Wanda Group on Wednesday announced it will host the first-ever ” ‘China Cup’ International Football Tournament” in January 2017.

Some people have said the “China Cup” could launch a rival to the Uefa Champions League, the annual football competition contested by top-division European clubs. The move is also hoped to help raise the quality of both international and Chinese football “to the next level”.

Wanda Group led by China’s richest man Wang Jianlin has scored again.

At a signing ceremony in Beijing on Wednesday, the company announced that its Wanda Sports Holdings and the Chinese Football Association will host the first-ever ” ‘China Cup’ International Football Tournament”.

The 2017 games will be held in the southern Chinese autonomous region of Guangxi, in Nanning city, from January 9th to the 16th.

China and the three first-class national teams from Europe and the Americas will play four games, aiming to offer fans a glimpse of international soccer’s top leagues.

“I can assure you that the Tournament will be the top football game in Asia, better even than the Asian Cup. The best teams of the Asian Cup are South Korea, Japan, Iran and Australia. We will invite more competitive teams,” said Wang Jianlin, chairman of Wanda Group.

It comes after Wanda Group last year acquired a 20% stake in the Atlético Madrid football club, apart from signing a deal with world football governing body Fifa to sponsor their next foru World Cups.

The “China Cup” is the first international soccer competition to land in China and is a FIFA-approved international A-level tournament. It is capable of earning FIFA points for global rankings.

As the host country, China will automatically qualify to enter its national team in the tournament, and therefore gets the opportunity to climb up FIFA ranks.

The China Cup will be held annually, initially featuring competition between four teams and gradually building up to eight teams.

Wang said,”I hope the China Cup will provide training ground for the national football team and promote the development of the sport of football in China. The national football team represents the level of a country’s football sport.”

The first China Cup comes as China’s national team prepares to compete for a spot in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Chinese groups have spent billions of dollars acquiring stakes in European football clubs and sports companies in recent years. The buying spree was sparked by the government’s plan to transform football-mad China into a “great sports nation” capable of even winning a World Cup.”

It also means that Chinese fans won’t have to go overseas or watch games in the early morning hours to enjoy international top-level competitions.
