Liverpool will visit Australia as part of their 2015-16 pre-season tour this summer, the club has announced.

The tour will represent the first official Liverpool matches following Steven Gerrard's departure from the club.

The Reds captain is going to leave Anfield at the end of the current campaign and has already announced he will be joining LA Galaxy.

The Reds will play Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on July 17 and Adelaide United at the Adelaide Oval three days later.

Chief executive Ian Ayre said: "We visited Australia for the first time two years ago and the support we received from our Australian fans was incredible. Liverpool FC have over 600,000 supporters in Australia and we look forward to meeting as many of them as possible while we are in the country."
