July 4 – Liverpool FC Women will travel with Jurgen Klopp’s men’s team on their pre-season US tour for the first time later this month.
The tour will include stops in the same three destinations as the men – Notre Dame in Indiana, Boston and New York.
The women’s team will undertake a training camp before playing games against Cleveland Ambassadors at Notre Dame University and New York Athletic at Boston University. In New York they will take part in community activities before travelling to Yankee Stadium to watch Liverpool men take on Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday, July 24.
Peter Moore, Liverpool chief executive officer and chairman of Liverpool FC Women, said: “I’m absolutely delighted we are returning to the USA this summer with not one but two LFC teams. Ensuring LFC Women could embark on their first ever tour of America is another sign of our commitment to the ‘two teams but one club’ ethos.”
The club’s official family partner, Joie Baby, will host Liverpool in the US.
Jerry Ingraham, Joie Chief Marketing Officer, said: “Joie are very excited to extend our support of LFC to the Liverpool FC Women’s team.
“LFC’s heritage of family traditions is a perfect fit for Joie, as we are dedicated to helping parents navigate family life with worry-free baby gear. We are pleased to support Liverpool FC Women and partner with LFC to celebrate the powerful women of today and inspire the next generation of fans and players.”
