Liverpool To Play Celtic In Dublin As Part Of Preseason Games

The-KopLiverpool and Celtic have agreed to play a friendly at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium in August.

The Hoops have set up the meeting but the Reds are all for the occasion which will be the first time the two sides have met since the Anfield club won 5-1 in the USA in 2004.

“We last played Celtic almost a decade ago so we are thrilled to get this event in our pre-season calendar,” said Liverpool’s chief commercial officer Billy Hogan.

“Both at Liverpool and Celtic we are fortunate to have two of the most passionate fan bases in the world and this fixture is a chance to bring them together once again.”

The match will take place on Saturday, August 10 and kicks off at 5:30pm with tickets to go on sale later on June. Tickets will be priced at €10 for children and from €25 for general admission to €55 for premium level tickets and both clubs have committed to bringing full, first-team squads.

The Celtic match will be Liverpool’s sixth pre-season game. They will face an Indonesia XI in Jakarta on July 20, then take on Australian A-League outfit Melbourne Victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground four days later, before playing Thailand in Bangkok on July 28.

Liverpool will then host Olympiakos at Anfield for Steven Gerrard’s testimonial on August 3, before travelling to Oslo to face Norwegian side Valerenga four days later.
