Liverpool Football Club (LFC) will make another visit to Fenway Park for a preseason match against AS Roma on Wednesday, July 23.
The two venerable soccer teams faced each other at Fenway on July 25, 2012, when over 37,000 fans attended the match that saw Roma come away with a 2-1 victory. Tickets for the friendly rematch will go on sale Friday May 2, 2014 and additional information will be released in the near future.
“Liverpool FC and AS Roma are two of the most highly regarded clubs in all of football, and we’re thrilled to welcome them back to Boston and showcase some of the world’s top talent playing the ‘Beautiful Game’ right here on the pitch at Fenway Park,” said Fenway Sports Group Chairman Tom Werner in a statement. “The atmosphere at their first Fenway match was electric, and with both clubs’ passionate supporters, tremendous worldwide following and strong ties to the City, the rematch is sure to be memorable.”
Liverpool’s return to the Fenway Park marks the start of the team’s 2014 US preseason tour, which includes International Champions Cup matches in Chicago, New York, and Charlotte, S.C.
“I look forward to Roma returning to the U.S. for a third straight summer,” said AS Roma President James Pallotta. “In particular, I am excited for the rematch with Liverpool at Fenway Park - it will no doubt be an exciting match against a great opponent in a historic stadium.”
