Roma will visit Chicago, Boston and New York in July’s tour of the U.S., including a friendly against Liverpool, announced the club.
The Giallorossi will play in Chicago on Sunday July 22 and New York on Monday July 28, but the opponents are yet to be decided.
We do know there is a fixture on Wednesday July 25 against Liverpool at Boston’s Fenway Park.
“As an ownership group, we have made growing the Roma brand in the U.S. one of our top priorities and this is a big step in the right direction,” said James Pallotta, Chief Executive of AS Roma Holdings.
“I cannot think of a bigger stage for Roma to play on than Fenway Park, in my hometown, in what is hopefully just the beginning of an on-going derby between these two great teams.”
Liverpool are owned by Fenway Sports Group, who have several shareholders at the helm of Roma. The same company owns the Boston Red Sox, who play at Fenway Park.
