A LIVERPOOL XI will play in Ireland this summer after Cork City FC and Waterford United confirmed that they’ll be welcoming the English side in July.
The SSE Airtricity League outfit have announced this morning that they’ll play Brendan Rodgers’ team in a friendly game at Turner’s Cross on Saturday, 11 July (7.45pm) while the Reds will face Waterford six days later.
There’s no indication as to how strong a squad Liverpool will bring to Ireland, but given the club’s huge following here, the games are sure to be a sell-out in any case.
It won’t be Liverpool’s first visit to the Munster clubs in recent memory either. In 2009, a crowd of 7,000 watched a Liverpool reserve team take on Dunmanway in a friendly in the West Cork town while Waterford hosted the five-time European winners in 2011.
Tickets for the game at Turner’s Cross will go on sale tomorrow — Saturday, 6 June. You can find more info by clicking here.
