Liverpool fans have not forgotten the man who scored 82 goals in just over three seasons with the club. On August 9, they will get to pack Wembley Stadium to see him face his former team.

Luis Suarez's presence is just one reason why the International Champions Cup matchup between Barcelona and Liverpool will be riveting, even for a pre-season fixture. He's been magnificent this past season with the Spanish champions, netting an astonishing 59 times in all competitions with his usual flair.

Tickets for the match, which started at £26 for adults and £15 for juniors, have sold out in under four hours, according to the Echo. There are some hospitality packages still available, however.

Though Liverpool's tour of the United States features high profile opponents such as Chelsea, Roma and AC Milan, it's their tune up back in England that will likely provide the most excitement. Even if it fails to live up to its hype -- which is likely considering the result will mean absolutely nothing -- it's encouraging to see the widespread enthusiasm shown for the event.
