The three London clubs will each host a round robin tournament in their home stadium, with funds raised to be shared between the mental health charity Mind and the clubs’ respective foundations.
Chelsea will parade the Champions League trophy in the game and expect an almost full crowd.
Kick-off date, time and location

The match will take place at Stamford Bridge in London, with a crowd close to capacity to attend.

Tickets for the match are currently on sale on the Chelsea website, with £ 5 of each ticket donated to Mind and the Chelsea Foundation.
Chelsea vs Tottenham team news
Mason Mount and Thiago Silva returned for pre-season training with Chelsea this week, as have Euro 2020 winners Jorginho and Emerson.
The four players got straight to work at the club’s training ground in Cobham and joined the rest of the players who took part in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Arsenal.
There will be no Harry Kane for Tottenham as the England captain is yet to return to pre-season training due to Manchester City’s interest in him.
Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are back in training at Spurs after returning earlier than expected after their Copa America and Euro exploits.
Prediction Chelsea vs Tottenham
Without Harry Kane and all the uncertainty surrounding his future, a win would give Spurs a much needed boost ahead of the new season. But Chelsea will want to put on a show in front of their fans the day they parade the Champions League trophy around Stamford Bridge.
