Liverpool FC has today confirmed it will be heading to the USA to take part in the International Champions Cup (ICC) as part of its pre-season preparations.
Reds supporters will flock to Michigan, Charlotte and New Jersey in order to see Jurgen Klopp’s men fight it out with some familiar opponents when they play three games in America this July.
Liverpool’s ICC fixtures are as follows:
July 22: Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund – Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, North Carolina.
July 25: Liverpool v Manchester City – MetLife Stadium, New Jersey.
July 28: Liverpool v Manchester United – Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbour, Michigan.
Billy Hogan, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer, Liverpool FC said: “Our pre-season tour is always a great opportunity for us to visit our supporters around the world – we’re really looking forward to visiting America this year and to compete in this fantastic tournament against some great teams.
“We’ll be bringing a bit of Merseyside to the USA and facing some outstanding opposition – we’re all looking forward to seeing our US fans and hearing the crowd in full voice.”
The Reds last took part in the ICC back in 2016 when they faced Chelsea and AC Milan in California and FC Barcelona at Wembley.
Daniel Sillman, CEO of ICC and RELEVENT, said: “Interest and fandom for European soccer in the United States and Asia is at an all-time high. Record numbers of new kids from every region and community are finding a passion for the game, the mythical teams and compelling personalities.
“The International Champions Cup and RELEVENT are incredibly excited about giving fans another amazing tournament. In addition to hosting legendary clubs in great cities and creating the European football experience, we are committed to finding new and innovative ways to bring the teams, players and fans together.
“Last week’s announcement of the first-ever women’s tournament was met with an overwhelming response, underscoring the passion for European soccer and our mission.”
