The Premier League side are more accustomed to playing in front of crowds of 40,000 plus so appearing and the more humble surroundings of these League Of Ireland grounds is sure to be a culture shock.
Chelsea playing over here would always attract interest but with club legend Frank Lampard seemingly set to be appointed manager of the London club, fans will be flocking to see them in action.
