The Reds are already scheduled to play a series of games in the US as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup.
They will kick off in that tournament by taking on Olympiacos at Chicago‘s Soldier Field on July 27. That will be followed with a match against Manchester City on July 30 at Yankee Stadium in New York, and a meeting with AC Milan at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C., on Aug. 2.
Liverpool’s return to Boston has special significance for the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group, who are based in the city and also own the Red Sox baseball team.
A group of four Boston executives closed a deal for Roma in 2011 and Thomas DiBenedett, a limited partner in the Fenway group, was Roma’s president from September 2011 until the following August.
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner told the club’s website:
“Liverpool and Roma are two of the most highly-regarded clubs in all of football.
“We’re thrilled to welcome them back to Boston and showcase some of the world’s top talent.”
