Liverpool are in California as part of a 11-day training camp, with games taking place in Los Angeles and Santa Clara against Chelsea and AC Milan.
Supporters in The Golden State will get the opportunity to get closer to their club than the usual 5,000-miles that separate the beaches of California with the River Mersey.
With thanks to the Official Supporters Clubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco, here’s the details of events happening in and around the Reds’ locations.
