UPDATE 13th June 2019:Β  Due to the Premier League fixtures and LFC playing Norwich City on the opening Friday - the Anfield game v Schalke has now been cancelled.


Liverpool have lined up their pre-season friendlies for the summer with the addition of 5 further games on top of their tour to the United States.

With the squad expected to being arriving from the start of July, the reds will kick off their summer planning with a trip to Tranmere Rovers on the 11th July, followed by a trip over to Yorkshire where they will face Bradford City on the 14th.

The game at Bradford forms part of a charity game for former player Stephen Darby's foundation.Β  The former academy graduate who did make 6 first team appearances retired from football after receiving his diagnosis of motor neurone disease last year.

Stephen has said:

"They are two amazing clubs who both played a massive part in my career and both will always have a special place in my heart. I can't thank both clubs and sets of fans enough for their support."

Liverpool will then head over to the United States for their three games against Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting Lisbon before they head back to Liverpool with two weeks remaining before the start of the season.

On the 28th July, Liverpool will face Napoli at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, the first time the reds have played at that stadium more well known for its rugby.
