Liverpool to come to States this summer
This is a rumor that has been out there for quite sometime but today the news leaked out that Liverpool will be coming to the States for 3 friendlies this summer as part of the ICC (Intentional Champions Cup) the reports have Liverpool playing Roma in Nashville on July 22, then they would travel to New Jersey to play Manchester City on July 25 at the Meadowlands, and they would finish there tour up at the University of Michigan’s Big House sometime between the 25th and 28th.
Liverpool is scheduled to be in the States from July 20-July 28 as part of their preseason training for the Premier League season which begins on August 11. When I first heard this news I got excited thinking despite it being a friendly I will make the roughly 3 hour drive from my house to the Meadowlands but then I thought about that this is a World Cup year, so basically any player that is participating in the World Cup likely wouldn’t join the club until after the trip to the states. Regardless is isn’t every day you get to see the Reds in your backyard so plenty of Stateside Reds will be very excited and I’m sure will come out in droves to support them during this preseason tour.
