Liverpool FC match - ticket update
Apr 29, 2013
An additional wave of public tickets to the Melbourne Victory v Liverpool FC fixture at the MCG on July 24, which were released on April 24 at 12pm AEST, have all been sold.
This is Liverpool FC's first-ever visit to Australia and the fixture against Melbourne Victory is just one element of a programme of activity– on and off the pitch - that the club is delivering in 2013 to bring Australian fans closer to the team.
As well as a full LFC squad, the club will be bringing over staff from the Liverpool FC Foundation to carry out work in the community.
Ian Ayre, Liverpool FC Managing Director, said:
"We knew we had a large fan base in Australia and we were overwhelmed by the response to the first wave of ticket sales. The whole club, including players and staff, are thrilled to be visiting Melbourne and are looking forward to meeting our LFC family in the Pacific."
Anthony Di Pietro, Melbourne Victory Chairman, said:
“Liverpool is one of the most famous clubs on the planet and the fact that they’ve opted to play Melbourne Victory on their first ever tour to Australia is great recognition for our club and the progress we’ve made in our short history.
“This truly is a momentous occasion for not only football fans, but sport fans in general, and where better to host such an event than one of the world’s most iconic sporting arenas – the Melbourne Cricket Ground.”
“Australia is very special to me. My last few games as a professional footballer were played for Sydney Olympic so the country has a special place in my heart.
I’m very excited about Liverpool FC coming out to Australia and I have no doubt that they too will enjoy their time in Oz as much as I did,” commented Ian Rush, former Liverpool FC player and club ambassador.
