Liverpool announce post season friendly against Sydney FC

Liverpool will play A-League Premiers Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium on the 24th of May in Sydney. 

The announcement was made on Facebook by Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

It’s been a solid season for third placed Liverpool, despite some inconsistent performances costing them a shot at the Premier League title.

The two teams will face off under lights at a sold out ANZ Stadium. The friendly will see fans travel from all parts of the country to fill the 83,000 seat stadium.

“We have so many incredible fans in Australia and there is always a brilliant atmosphere when we play over here,” said Liverpool ambassador Ian Rush.

“This is the first time the lads have played in Sydney and they’re really looking forward to a great match against one of Australia’s best A-League teams.”

Rumors suggest that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard could potentially play against Sydney next month. Gerrard played in Liverpool’s friendly against Melbourne Victory at the MCG in 2013. It broke the record for the biggest ever crowd for a football match in Melbourne, Victoria.
