Liverpool Football Club will head to the USA as part of their 2019-20 pre-season preparations this July to play in three of the most iconic sporting venues in the States.
Jürgen Klopp’s men will visit Fenway Park in Boston, Yankee Stadium in New York City and Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana at the University of Notre Dame.
Kicking off the Reds’ trip, the University of Notre Dame in Indiana will host a competitive football match for the first time in the 90-year history of its 77,000-seat venue, when the Reds face Borussia Dortmund on Friday July 19 (8pm kick-off local time).
The team will next 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 July 21 (6pm kick-off local time).
Then, on Wednesday July 24, the famous Yankee Stadium baseball field will be transformed into a football pitch when Liverpool take on Sporting CP (8pm kick-off local time).
Billy Hogan, LFC’s managing director and chief commercial officer, 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.
