Liverpool have confirmed that they will head to Hong Kong for the Premier League Asia Trophy this summer.
The eighth edition of the Premier League Asia Trophy (previously Barclays Asia Trophy) will take place at the Hong Kong Stadium on Wednesday 19 and Saturday 22 July.
The biennial tournament will see the Reds make their second appearance, competing against Premier League clubs Crystal Palace, Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion.
Liverpool FC played in the tournament back in 2007, losing out to Portsmouth in a thrilling penalty shoot-out.
The Premier League Asia Trophy is part of the League’s ongoing commitment to fans in Asia, and to supporting the development of football at all levels in Hong Kong and across the region. A full programme of coaching and community initiatives, including another Premier Skills coaching programme run in partnership with the Hong Kong Football Association, will run alongside the tournament.
Ticketing information for fans will be announced in early June. Tickets will be sold per match day (19 July, 22 July) with each ticket allowing access to both matches on that day.
Jurgen Klopp says: “We’re really looking forward to playing in the Premier League Asia Trophy this summer. It’s important that the Club takes part in competitions like this as it gives local fans the opportunity to get closer to the action.
“The club has a huge fanbase in Hong Kong and we hope to put on a good performance for our fans.”
