Liverpool FC is bringing its fans in the USA closer to the pre-season action thanks to a new partnership with Turner Sports.
Starting on Friday July 19, at 8pm ET, supporters can catch the first Reds match at Notre Dame against Borussia Dortmund.
On Sunday July 21, at 6pm, the Reds will play Sevilla at Boston’s Fenway Park and then on Wednesday July 24, at 8pm, will face Sporting CP in The Western Union Cup at Yankee Stadium in New York.
The deal will help to build anticipation for the Reds’ imminent arrival Stateside, when thousands of fans will turn out to catch a glimpse of the champions of Europe in action.
All matches will be streamed live via B/R Live, Turner Sports’ premium streaming service, with the July 19 and 24 matches also available on TNT. B/R Football will provide studio coverage, along with original content across its social channels to highlight all three matches.
Billy Hogan, LFC’s managing director and chief commercial officer, said: “We have millions of fans across the States and although we try to visit as many as we can on pre-season tour, having a partner like Turner Sports enables more of our supporters to get involved in our games and enjoy that authentic matchday experience.
“We’re really delighted that through our partnership with Turner nearly 90million homes will have this opportunity – we’re very much looking forward to working together.”
Tina Shah, EVP and GM of Turner Sports, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Liverpool FC, fresh off the impressive UEFA Champions League victory, and deliver this premium content to their passionate fan base in the US.
“Our first year of UEFA Champions League coverage across TNT and B/R Live was a tremendous success and we’re looking forward to driving additional reach and engagement with Reds content across all of our platforms.”
