Match against Watford on Monday night will be new champions' annual Game for Equality

As well as welcoming home the 2016/17 Premier League title winners to Stamford Bridge, Monday night's match against Watford will mark Chelsea's annual Game for Equality.

This celebrates Chelsea's diversity and inclusion work, which, through the Building Bridges initiative, brings together anti-discrimination campaigns and charities as well as football authorities to highlight the importance of tackling all forms of discrimination and creating an inclusive environment for everyone.

"I am proud to play for a club where everyone is welcome, whoever they are, whatever their background and wherever they come from," defender Cesar Azpilicueta told chelseafc.com.

"At Chelsea, being different is what makes us strong and helps us to be successful on and off the pitch. The Game for Equality is a great opportunity to celebrate that."

The team will warm-up at Stamford Bridge in T-shirts promoting equality and will wear the Building Bridges logo on their kit.

Chelsea have achieved the Premier League's Equality Standard Advanced Level, a recognition of the club's commitment to creating a club where everyone feels welcome, valued and included as part of the Chelsea community.
