Cup winner Ajax will play a practice match against FC Chelsea, winner of the English double. The match will take place on Friday, July 23, 2010, at the Amsterdam ArenA. This is in preparation for the 2010-2011 season.
The match is a friendly one between two European teams who both had a successful end to last season. Chelsea made club history by winning the ‘double’ for the first time ever. The Blues, under Carlo Ancelotti’s leadership, won the national title by only one point over Manchester United. In the FA Cup final, Chelsea defeated Portsmouth 1-0. Ajax won the KNVB Cup by beating Feyenoord in both matches of the split final (2-0, 1-4).
