SBS will exclusively broadcast FA Cup winners Chelsea FC’s clash against Perth Glory. The match will be shown live, free and in HD on Monday July 23 from Optus Stadium.

It will be simulcast in Australia via The World Game website, The World Game app, and on SBS On Demand.

The one-off match will be the first football game to be played at the new multipurpose stadium in Perth and Tony Popovic’s first game as Glory Coach.

SBS director of sport Ken Shipp said: “We are pleased to be presenting the broadcast of Chelsea’s first game in Perth since 1974 live, free and in HD on SBS later this year.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for Australian football fans to see one of our local sides go head to head with one of the most established clubs in Europe at a brand new, state-of-the-art stadium, with the trusted coverage and comprehensive analysis SBS is known for.

“We’re proud of our football heritage at SBS and we know the sport’s ability to unite Australia’s diverse communities will be more prevalent than ever in the wake of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.”

The match is slotted between the end of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2018-19 Premier League season.
