Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre said the trip would be a great chance to reconnect with their large Australian supporter base as well as fine-tune preparations for the season ahead.

“We visited Australia for the first time two years ago and the support we received from our Australian fans was incredible,” he said.

“Liverpool FC have more than 600,000 supporters in Australia and we look forward to meeting as many of them as possible while we are in the country.

“Pre-season is an important time for the team as they prepare for the upcoming season and the matches against Brisbane Roar and Adelaide United are an exciting part of that preparation, giving our supporters a chance to see the team up close, no matter how far away from Anfield they live.”
