Tickets on sale NOW as Liverpool to play summer friendly in Dublin

Liverpool have confirmed the rumours that they will take on SSC Napoli in a pre-season friendly fixture in Dublin.

The European semi-finalists will take on their Italian opponents at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday, August 4.

Tickets went on sale to the public on Friday 27th April at 11am and can be purchased right here via Ticketmaster. Prices range from €10 for kids through to €125 for a Family Package (which includes two adults and two children).

The Reds could, of course, have the Champions League trophy on show. They lead Roma 5-2 after the first leg of the semi-final, with the second leg to come in Rome on Wednesday.

Napoli, meanwhile, could be parading the Serie A trophy. They sit just a point behind leaders Juventus with four games still left to play.

Ian Rush, LFC Ambassador, said: “As a Club, we have tremendous support in Ireland, so it’s always a pleasure to come to Dublin and play in front of our Irish fans. There’s certain to be a fantastic atmosphere in the Aviva Stadium when LFC and our Italian opponents arrive in August; and we thank the Football Association of Ireland for their support in hosting the game.”

The teams may have avoided each other in the Champions League this year, but will now confront each other on neutral turf, in Ireland.

Liverpool FC last played SSC Napoli in 2010, in a Europa League group game, when Steven Gerrard came off the bench to inspire a 3-1 win.

This is the second successive year that Liverpool will play in Dublin, following last summer's win over Athletic Club in front of a sold-out crowd at Aviva Stadium; the Reds’ return is bound to excite the thousands of supporters throughout Ireland.
