Liverpool to face Arsenal in Philadelphia this summer




For the second consecutive summer, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field will host at least one Premier League exhibition. This morning, Liverpool F.C. has announced two stateside friendlies, with the first taking place in the City of Brotherly Love. The Reds will face Arsenal on July 31, with a kickoff time to be announced at a later date.

Liverpool will also face rivals Manchester United in South Carolina the following week. Tickets for both fixtures will be available next week, with an exclusive pre-sale on Monday, February 26th, and a general sale the following day.

Last year saw the Premier League’s inaugural Summer Series, a round-robin tournament across multiple U.S. cities, begin in Philadelphia. All three games at the home of the Philadelphia Eagles drew impressive crowds, with the headlining fixture between Chelsea F.C. and Brighton and Hove Albion drawing over 65,000 spectators.
