Some Liverpool fans won’t make it inside of Fenway Park on July 25 because the friendly against AS Roma sold out weeks ago. Many more won’t even make it near the East Coast of the United States in late July. But those fans are in luck.
On Monday, LFC announced that ESPN networks will broadcast two games of LFC’s North American tour live to a domestic and international audience.
LFC’s games against AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspur will air on ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes in the United States.
The LFC-Roma meeting will take place on July 25 at historic Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. The live broadcast will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET.
The Reds will head to Baltimore, Md. to face Premier League rival Tottenham on July 28. The live broadcast for that contest will start at 1 p.m. ET.
“World football has experienced consistent growth in the U.S. over the last two decades and ESPN has played a critical role in that growth through its award-winning coverage and analysis, and by providing Barclays Premier League fans with live access to key matches across its network,” Liverpool FC chief commercial officer Billy Hogan said. “This partnership will allow our U.S. supporters to see the club live in action this summer and presents a signature opportunity to introduce Liverpool football to new audiences across the globe.”
NESN will re-air both games on the following day. LFC-Roma will air on Thursday, July 26 at 5 p.m. and LFC-Tottenham will air on Sunday, July 29 at 1 p.m. On July 25 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., NESN will air a live live pregame show from the Yawkey Way stage, hosted by Tom Caron.
