Another date has been confirmed for Liverpool’s north American tour this summer, with the Reds to play Tottenham in Baltimore on July 28th.

Earlier this week a fixture to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, against Roma, was confirmed for July 25th.

Kenny Dalglish’s side will then head to the state of Maryland to play the fellow Premier League side at the impressive 71,000 seater M&T Bank Stadium.

Liverpool will use famous university campus Harvard State for their training facilities and will be predominantly based in Boston throughout their stay in the States, which ties in with the release of new kit under manufacturers Warrior Sports.

Tickets for the Spurs game go on sale this Tuesday via Ticketmaster and are on pre-sale now.

The temperature in Baltimore in July is very high, the match will kick-off at 1pm.

Kenny Dalglish told the official LFC website;

“We’re really looking forward to the tour and playing against some quality opposition. 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 this summer. My son Paul worked and played in America and he’s told me about just how much interest there is in Liverpool, and English football, right now. I’m told football is the fastest growing sport in America so hopefully we can put on two good performances for the fans who turn up to watch us play. We’ve had some amazing matches against Roma in the past, particularly the 1984 European Cup final, and games against Spurs are always entertaining, so it should be fantastic.”

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp told their website;

“Taking on Liverpool on US soil will be a great experience and one that I’m sure will really appeal to our fans. Both Clubs have a fantastic heritage and matches against the two teams have a history of being exciting, hard fought and high scoring affairs. I expect this to be no different.”
