Liverpool finally announce pre-season friendlies – with Klopp to meet ex-club – Liverpool FC – .


Liverpool have finally confirmed a handful of preseason friendlies for this summer, with less than five weeks to go to the start of the new season.

Reds players who are not on international duty at Euro or Copa America return to pre-season training on Monday, meeting again in Austria and not in Merseyside as is the norm.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will be in Austria for four games, they will see them line up against FC Wacker Innsbruck, VfB Stuttgart, FSV Mayence 05 and Hertha Berlin.

They will each coincide with the Reds’ training schedule and, as such, the first scheduled match date, July 20, will feature two 30-minute mini-matches against FC Wacker Innsbruck and VfB Stuttgart.

They will be behind closed doors, with the next two matches, including against former club Klopp in Mainz 05, played with limited capacity at Greisbergers Betten-Arena and Tivoli Stadium.

Travel restrictions are in place and fans wishing to attend should check local regulations as to their eligibility to attend.

More local UK fixtures are to be announced in due course, with at least one friendly at Anfield scheduled for August.
