Liverpool arranges preseason friendly with Toronto

Liverpool will open its tour of North America this summer with a

friendly against Major League Soccer side Toronto FC on July


The Premier League team has also scheduled matches against

Italian side Roma in Boston on July 25 and English rival Tottenham

in Baltimore three days later as it attempts to increase its

exposure across the Atlantic.

The game against Toronto at the Rogers Center – the home of the

Toronto Blue Jays baseball team – will form part of the World

Football Challenge.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said Tuesday that ”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.”
