Unlike the new head coaches at Manchesters United and City, Chelsea seemed committed to flying a bit more under the radar with the introduction of Antonio Conte.  He wasn't even scheduled to speak to the media until after Chelsea's first pre-season match, this coming Saturday in Austria.

Chelsea have thought better of it however, and have now scheduled a proper unveiling and introductory press conference for the new boss for Thursday, July 14, 2016, at 2pm local time.

Presumably the event, or least part of it, just as most press conferences, will be carried live on Chelsea TV or Sky or both.

While such things can often be banal, boring events, full of cliches and all the usual formalities that these occasions demand, Conte's irrepressible blend of determination and passion could make for interesting viewing.  Mark your calendars!
