Liverpool Football Club today announced the club will return to the United States this summer to take part in the Guinness International Champions Cup as part of their 2014 pre-season tour.

The Reds will join the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Manchester United, Olympiacos, Real Madrid and AS Roma in competing in the tournament.

Liverpool's chief commercial officer, Billy Hogan, said: "We were last in the USA in 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit, so we are delighted to be invited to take part in the Guinness International Champions Cup and revisit again this year.

"This will be the club's seventh visit to North America, where we know we have a huge fan base, and being part of this tournament will allow us to bring the club closer to those supporters and engage with them once again."

For the competition, the teams will be divided into two groups and will play at least three matches before the winners of Group A and Group B meet in the final at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Monday, August 4.

Stay tuned to in the coming weeks for official confirmation of fixtures, dates and venues.

Please note: Liverpool FC's participation in the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup will be dependent on the games not impacting on any potential European qualification matches.
