Liverpool Football Club will head across the pond to the United States as part of its pre-season preparations this July to play in three of the most iconic sporting venues in the United States.

Jurgen Klopp's men will visit Notre Dame Stadium in Notre Dame, Indiana, Fenway Park in Boston and Yankee Stadium in New York City.

The University of Notre Dame will host a competitive soccer match for the first time in the 90-year history of its historic 77,000-seat stadium when the Reds face Borussia Dortmund on Friday, July 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

The team will then 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.  

On Wednesday, July 24, the famous Yankee Stadium baseball field will be transformed into a football pitch when Liverpool F.C. return to take on Sporting CP.

"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," Billy Hogan, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer, Liverpool F.C. said. "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."
