Seagulls to take on European Champions

Chelsea's Fernando Torres celebrates with the Champions League trophy

Brighton and Hove Albion have announced a mouth watering friendly fixture ahead of the new season, playing Champions League winners Chelsea.

Gus Poyet will go head-to-head with his former Blues team-mate and close friend Roberto Di Matteo, who recently signed a two-year deal at Stamford Bridge in the wake of their European success.

Capacity at the Amex for the game on Saturday, August 4, will be limited to 18,000 due to the ground's expansion, adding 8,000 more seats.
