Liverpool will be heading to the United States this summer to play friendlies in three of the most historic sports stadiums in America.
The Reds will play:
• Borussia Dortmund on July 19 at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana
• Sevilla on July 21 at Fenway Park, Boston
• Sporting Lisbon on July 24 at Yankee Stadium, Bronx
The matches will be part of Liverpool’s preparation for the 2019/20 Premier League season.
University of Notre Dame in Indiana will host a competitive soccer match for the first time in the 90-year history of its historic 77,000-seat stadium when the Reds face Borussia Dortmund on Friday, July 19th (KO 8pm local time).
The team will then make their way to Boston for a welcome return to the home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park, to meet Spain’s oldest football club Sevilla FC on Sunday 21 July (KO 6pm local time).
On Wednesday 24 July, the famous Yankee Stadium baseball field will be transformed into a soccer pitch when Liverpool return to take on Sporting CP (KO 8pm local time).
Billy Hogan, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer, Liverpool FC said: “Pre-season tour is an important time of the year for our first team to prepare for the upcoming season while also providing the opportunity to bring the first team to our fans around the world.
“We’re heading to three incredible locations this year. Each of the stadiums has their own deep-rooted heritage similar to our own and we’ll face three great opposition teams in Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP. This trip to the USA will be very special and we’re really looking forward to having as many of our supporters with us along the way.”
While in the USA, the club will also take an active role in key local community projects in each of the three locations visited.
