The dates and kick-off times for all six of our fixtures in this season’s Champions League group stage have now been confirmed.
UEFA have announced the order and dates for games in the groups and the Blues will begin our European adventure for the season in Croatia with our first ever meeting against Dinamo Zagreb. That takes place on Tuesday 6 September in the early evening kick-off slot, 5.45pm UK time.
Thomas Tuchel’s side then host back-to-back matches at Stamford Bridge against the champions of Austria and Italy, with RB Salzburg in town on Wednesday 14 September and AC Milan our visitors on Wednesday 5 October, both 8pm UK kick-offs.
Matchday four takes us back to one of European football’s iconic grounds as we visit the San Siro to take on Milan for the first time since 1999.
That clash is on Tuesday 11 October before our final group stage trip a fortnight later against RB Salzburg. We conclude Group E with a home fixture against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday 2 November.
As a result of these Champions League fixtures, our Premier League home game against West Ham will now take place on Saturday 3 September, with the kick-off time to be confirmed shortly. Our trip to Fulham a week later remains on Saturday 10 September in the 12.30pm lunchtime kick-off slot.
All the relevant information regarding tickets and travel for our Champions League group games will be communicated to supporters on the official Chelsea website, The 5th Stand app and our social media channels as soon as it becomes available.
