Liverpool Set to Play in South Africa and Indonesia On 2013 Summer Tour
Liverpool are set to play a friendly in South Africa just two days after their final game of the 2012-13 Premier League season.
The friendly between Liverpool and Ajax Cape Town has been penciled in for Tuesday, May 23 according to the Liverpool Echo.
Ajax Cape Town are currently in a relegation battle in the South Africa Premier League.
This will be Liverpool’s first visit to South Africa since 1994.
In addition to a friendly in South Africa, Liverpool will play friendlies this summer in Australia, Thailand and Indonesia.
Liverpool’s visit to Indonesia will be the first one in their history. The club will play in Jakarta on July 20 against an Indonesian XI.
“We’re delighted that we will be able to host the club in Indonesia in a few months,” said Tom Aaker, chief executive officer, Standard Chartered Indonesia. ”It is particularly fitting since 2013 marks 150 years since Standard Chartered opened its doors in Indonesia. We will be celebrating this anniversary all year and Liverpool FC’s visit in the summer will be a particular highlight.”
