Fenway Park To Host Liverpool Vs. Roma Friendly In July

Boston's Fenway Park will once again host an international soccer match as English Premier League side Liverpool will meet up with Italian Serie A side Roma in an friendly on July 25. The match will be the 20th in the history of the nearly 100-year-old venue.

Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Red Sox, also owns Liverpool which was purchased in 2010. John Henry, Red Sox and Liverpool owner, said about the match:

"During its 100-year history, Fenway Park has hosted some of the best in athletic competition, and a match between Liverpool and Roma -- two of the world's most well-known and respected clubs -- is an appropriate way to ... showcase our ballpark to an international audience," Liverpool owner John Henry said.

Liverpool defeated Roma in the 1984 European Cup Final in a penalty shootout, 4-2, which gave Liverpool their fourth European Cup victory.

Liverpool will make Boston a home base and practice at Harvard during their American preseason tour. The EPL team last traveled to the U.S. in 2004.
