Liverpool unveil plans for US tour
Wednesday 28 March 2012
Liverpool have announced plans for a pre-season tour of North America which will include a glamour friendly against Roma in Boston.
The Reds will play the Italian giants on July 25 at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, who share owners with the Anfield club.
The match will form part of the ballpark's 100th anniversary celebrations.
Manager Kenny Dalglish said: "We had a great time playing in front of our supporters in Asia last year and it will be good to give our fans in North America the chance to watch us live this summer."
The full schedule for the tour will be announced in due course but Liverpool's main base will be in Boston and they will train at Harvard University.
