Liverpool To Proceed With Original Stadium Plans After Funding Is Secured
Published January 17, 2012
KICK START: In Boston, Frank Dell’Apa cites sources as saying that organizers are “planning an exhibition soccer game between Liverpool FC and AS Roma at Fenway Park this summer.” The match would be “part of United States tours for both teams, the first since controlling interest in the clubs was purchased by Boston-based investors.” FSG purchased Liverpool in ’10, and Red Sox minority owner Thomas DiBenedetto and Celtics minority owner James Pallotta purchased AS Roma last year. The game would be “part of a tournament involving" EPL club Chelsea and, possibly, Scottish Premier League club Celtic. Matches will also be held “in Chicago (Comiskey Park or Wrigley Field) and New York (Yankee Stadium)” (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/17).
