Liverpool to play at Notre Dame Stadium, Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium as part of U.S. tour

Liverpool will play the first-ever competitive soccer match at Notre Dame Stadium as part a three-game preseason tour of the United States this summer.

The Premier League leaders announced on Tuesday they will stage friendly matches from July 19-24 in three of the U.S.'s most iconic stadiums.

The tour will begin on July 19, when the Reds will take on Borussia Dortmund at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana. They will then face Sevilla at Boston's Fenway Park on July 21 before wrapping up against Portuguese side Sporting at Yankee Stadium in New York three days later.

"Preseason tour is an important time of the year for our first team to prepare for the upcoming season, while also providing the opportunity to bring the first team to our fans around the world," said Liverpool chief commercial officer Billy Hogan.

"We're heading to three incredible locations this year. Each of the stadiums has their own deep-rooted heritage similar to our own and we'll face three great opposition teams in Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP.

"This trip to the USA will be very special and we're really looking forward to having as many of our supporters with us along the way."

July 19: LFC vs. Borussia Dortmund, Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Indiana

July 21: LFC vs. Sevilla, Fenway Park, Boston
