It will see two clubs with strong histories of success and great fans face each other in what should be an entertaining game of football and a great occasion. It will be a great game for our players to be involved in, and also a good day out for our fans and Irish supporters of Liverpool, many of whom are also SSE Airtricity League supporters.”

While Liverpool FC Chief Commercial Officer, Billy Hogan said: “We are looking forward to coming back to Dublin again this year to play in front of our Irish fans. The Club enjoys incredible support in Ireland. Our opponent, Shamrock Rovers, hold a special place for us as we bought Jim Beglin from them in 1983, who became Bob Paisley’s last-ever signing”.
