Liverpool has officially added a third friendly to their upcoming summer tour of the United States. The Reds previously revealed games against fellow Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United. This matchup with the Gunners is set for July 31 in Philadelphia. The fixture against the Red Devils, on the other hand, will be on August 3rd in Columbia, South Carolina.

Pittsburgh friendly added as two other Liverpool preseason games sold out

Liverpool’s upcoming trip to the United States will be their first time across the pond in five years. The Reds last scheduled three fixtures Stateside back in 2019, including a friendly against manager Jurgen Klopp’s old team, Borussia Dortmund. While Liverpool failed to win any of the trio of matchups, the Reds did eventually go on to collect the Premier League title later that season.

Club officials stated that the game in Pittsburgh will offer American fans another chance to catch their favorite team. The aforementioned games against Arsenal and Manchester United are both now sold out. However, select seats can still be purchased on the resale market.

“Adding Pittsburgh to our preseason tour schedule is a great way to start our eagerly anticipated return to the USA,” proclaimed Liverpool’s commercial director Ben Latty.

“We were delighted to quickly sell out our fixtures against Arsenal and Manchester United on this tour and are equally excited to be able to offer our supporters in the States another opportunity to see Liverpool FC play. Real Betis will come with a strong squad and it’s going to be a great occasion in another iconic setting, in another fantastic U.S. city.”
