Yankee Stadium to host Liverpool tour finale

Liverpool will play a friendly in Yankee Stadium as they return to the United States for this summer’s pre-season preparations.

The New York Yankees baseball team’s historic arena will host the third and final match of the mini-tour, against Sporting Lisbon on July 24.

Prior to that Liverpool will take on manager Jurgen Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund in the first competitive football match in the University of Notre Dame’s 77,000-capacity stadium in Indiana, on July 19.

The Reds then fly to Boston where they will once again play a friendly against Sevilla at Fenway Park – home of the Boston Red Sox baseball franchise, the other prized asset in Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group’s portfolio.

“We’re heading to three incredible locations this year,” said Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer.

“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.”

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
