Two more friendlies announced by Reds

Liverpool have managed to squeeze in two more pre-season fixtures in to their schedule in the run-up to the new league campaign.

Both of these friendlies are overseas, both against teams the Reds played last season.

An arrangement to play Bayer Leverkusen had already been made but not announced by Liverpool, this has now been confirmed to be played on Saturday July 16th. The game will be played in Austria, Lustenau.

A week later Liverpool are travelling to Liechtenstein, to face Olympiacos in Vaduz.

Liverpool say that they won’t be selling tickets for either fixture from the Anfield box-office.

Liverpool’s pre-season gets underway this afternoon with a friendly against Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground. The first competitive match follows on Wednesday when Anfield plays host to Total Network Solutions in the first leg of the Champions League qualifying fixture.

Sandwiched between the two newly-announced friendlies is the return leg against TNS, being played at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground. Liverpool are actually going to be at a Swiss training camp once the first leg has been played, and so will be flying back to the UK just to play the second leg, before returning to Switzerland.
