Liverpool Officially Announces 2012 Summer Tour of United States

Liverpool today officially announced their 2012 summer tour of the United States. The much anticipated visit by Liverpool, which was reported by EPL Talk more than two months ago, will see a welcome return for the Reds to America — their first visit in 7 years.

Currently, Liverpool has announced only one date of their North America tour, and that’ll be July 25 when Liverpool plays Roma at Fenway Park in Boston.

Tickets for the Boston match will go on sale on Saturday April 28 with details of how to buy tickets available at www.lfctour.com next month.

“We had a great time playing in front of our supporters in Asia last year and it will be good to give our fans in North America the chance to watch us live this summer,” said Liverpool FC Manager Kenny Dalglish. “My son Paul worked and played in America and he’s told me about just how much interest there is in Liverpool, and English football, right now. We’ve had some amazing matches against Roma in the past, particularly the 1984 European Cup final, so it should be fantastic.”

“During its 100-year history, Fenway Park has hosted some of the best in athletic competition and a match between Liverpool and AS Roma – two of the world’s most well-known and respected clubs – is an appropriate way to help celebrate Fenway’s 100th anniversary and showcase our ballpark to an international audience,” said Fenway Sports Group Principal Owner John W. Henry.

The Liverpool club website said that the team will use Boston as its home base. The club will train at Harvard University. This summer’s tour will be a 12-day visit to America which will include two more matches to be announced. One of them is expected to be in Toronto. Yankee Stadium has also been touted. We already know that Chelsea will probably play Celtic at Yankee Stadium, so it’s possible that Liverpool and another team to be announced could compete in a four game invitational tournament, or that Liverpool will play elsewhere instead if Celtic was selected over the Reds.

Stay tuned to EPL Talk in the coming weeks for news updates regarding the tour.
