Liverpool will kick off its summer 2012 North American tour with a friendly against Toronto FC on July 21 at Rogers Centre, in Toronto.
The Merseyside club officially announced the news yesterday. The match will be played at the 47,000 capacity Rogers Center, which is a baseball stadium that’s home to the Toronto Blue Jays.
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre commented: “We’re delighted to be opening our North American tour in Canada with a game against Toronto FC. We played Porto at the same stadium – when it was the SkyDome – back in 2004 in front of over 40,000 fans and it will be great to give our fans in the region another chance to see Liverpool play. With the three games we now have scheduled in Toronto, Boston and Baltimore, we hope that as many of our supporters as possible will have the chance to see the team in action.”
After the friendly against Toronto, Liverpool will play Roma at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 25, followed by a game against Tottenham Hotspur on July 28 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Ticket news regarding the Liverpool against Toronto friendly will be released in the near future on the Liverpool Tour 2012 website.
