Roma-Liverpool in Boston

Roma will play Liverpool in a friendly at Fenway Park on July 25, as both clubs are owned by Boston investors.

Giallorossi majority shareholder Thomas Di Benedetto is also part-owner of the Fenway Sports Group, the parent company of both Liverpool and Boston Red Sox.

“During its 100-year history, Fenway Park has hosted some of the best in athletic competition,” said Fenway Sports Group’s principal owner John Henry.

“A match between Liverpool and AS Roma – two of the world's most well-known and respected clubs – is an appropriate way to help celebrate Fenway's 100th anniversary and showcase our ballpark to an international audience.”

Both Roma and Liverpool are set for summer tours of North America.
