March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Liverpool will face Italian club Roma at Fenway Park in Boston during its preseason tour of North America, the Premier League soccer team said on its website.
The July 25 match will be part of the 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway, home of the Boston Red Sox. Liverpool and the Red Sox are both owned by Fenway Sports Group.
Liverpool owner John Henry said the match between “two of the world’s most well-known and respected clubs” will “showcase our ballpark to an international audience.”
The full schedule of the 12-day tour will be announced at a later date, Liverpool said. The Reds last visited North America in 2004, playing matches in Connecticut, New Jersey and Toronto.
