Dundalk FC have announced a glamour friendly against a Chelsea XI on August 14 at Oriel Park. The Champions League winners will be coming to Oriel in a bid to boost finances for the cash-strapped Lilywhites and are hopeful of gaining a sizable crowd.
In addition to the match being played, the FA Cup and Champions League trophies are expected to make the trip from Chelsea's trophy cabinet and hopefully will attract huge interest around the town and maybe beyond.
Ticket prices range from €5-€15 with special family tickets available also. This is one of a number of fundraisers that the club have lined up for the summer months.
