Chelsea added a friendly game in Moscow to their already busy pre-season schedule.

The match was arranged to celebrate the opening of CSKA Moscow new stadium.

New boss Antonio Conte and his players will travel to Austria and USA in July but it is believed owner Roman Abramovich wanted the club to agree to the request as a favour to CSKA president Yevgeny Giner, despite the possibility the fixture will take place just a week before the start of the next League campaign.
