Liverpool Returning to North America

Christopher Furlong

Squeezed into the rush as the transfer window ticks down, there's news that Liverpool are heading back to the United States next summer as part of a pre-season friendly tournament.

Liverpool may still be trying to complete a deal to bring Yevhen Konoplyanka to Anfield, but with or without their potential new signing, the club know they will head to the United States next summer for a pre-season tour. Liverpool will be part of a group of eight clubs heading to the States to play a friendly tournament ahead of next season, with the Reds joined by Manchester City, Manchester United, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Roma, Real Madrid, and Olympiacos.

Liverpool will face Olympiacos in Chicago on July 26th, AC Milan in Philadelphia on July 30th, and Manchester City in Charlotte on August 2nd. Semi-finals follow immediately on the 3rd in Miami between the top four clubs, and the finals are on the 4th, also in Miami. Fans more worried about pre-season as a chance to prepare for the coming campaign than as a chance to see their club play may hope Liverpool don't make it to the semi-finals or finals given the bizarre scheduling.

After appearing in North America for their pre-season tour in Brendan Rodgers' first season in charge, a return two years later makes for an unexpectedly quick return to the continent. There is no news yet as to whether the club plan on playing games in North America outside of those already scheduled as part of the friendly tournament.
