Liverpool head to the USA for a second consecutive summer and will be returning to the iconic Yankee Stadium in New York City while Stateside.
Last summer saw incredible scenes in Michigan as the Reds smashed Man United 4-1 in front of over 100,000 fans, showing the power of Liverpool’s global support.
Fans from North America and beyond will again get the opportunity to watch the now-six times European Cup winners in action, in what will be the final game of three matches in the USA.
That means that by the time Klopp’s side arrive in the Big Apple, they will be getting closer to match sharpness and could have some of their star names returning after international commitments.
The European Champions will play Portuguese side Sporting CP on Wednesday 24 July (8pm kick off).
It will be the second time the Reds have played at Yankee Stadium, which is the current home to Major League Soccer side New York City FC.
Back in 2014, the Reds saw off Manchester City in a friendly, winning the match on penalties after a 2-2 draw.
Liverpool have, though, played at the original Yankee Stadium, back in 1953, when Billy Liddell scored the Reds’ only goal in a 1-1 draw against Young Boys of Switzerland.

New York as a city needs little introduction, but once you’ve got your tickets sorted, here’s some tips for your trip:
- Head to the One World Observatory – the tallest building in the United States, which has 360 degree views and means you get the iconic New York City skyline in your photos!
- There’s lots of great rooftop bars which give you an amazing view over the city. We recommend 230 on Fifth (which is, as you probably guessed, 230 on Fifth Avenue).
- A good way to visit Strawberry Fields – a memorial garden to John Lennon located in Central Park – is to get the subway to the American History Museum and head back through the park past the lake. A must visit.
- The boats to the Statue of Liberty can be extremely busy in the summer. So if you’re struggling for time, take the Staten Island ferry to get your photos of the statue and harbour instead.
- Head to the Brooklyn Bridge and walk across and into the waterfront to get great views of downtown Manhattan. It’s especially worth the trip at night when the city is lit up.
- A good way to see more of the city is to take a walk – or run if you’re feeling ambitious!
- Getting to Yankee Stadium is very simple. From midtown Manhattan – anywhere near Times Square area, or from the iconic Grand Central Station – get the D line or #4 Uptown. This is a half-hour metro ride.
