BOSTON- Roma and Liverpool will play at Fenway Park for a pre-season match on Wednesday, July 23, Fenway Sports Group announced on Wednesday.
Both clubs have owners that are based in Boston. Roma's president is James Pallotta, a shareholder in the Boston Celtics. Liverpool is owned by John Henry, also the owner of the Boston Red Sox.
The two clubs squared off two summers ago in the same venue, with Roma winning the tilt by a 2-1 scoreline. The match served as the introduction to several new European talents, including Alessandro Florenzi and Raheem Sterling.
That game had a sold out crowd of 37,000.
