Fenway Park will again open its doors to two prominent European soccer teams when the historic ballpark plays host to a rematch between Liverpool and AS Roma on July 23. Tickets go on sale May 2. The teams played at Fenway two years earlier before a sellout crowd of more than 37,000. "Liverpool FC and AS Roma are two of the most highly regarded clubs in all of football, and we'€™re thrilled to welcome them back to Boston and showcase some of the world'€™s top talent playing the '€˜Beautiful Game'€™ right here on the pitch at Fenway Park," said Fenway Sports Group chairman Tom Werner. "The atmosphere at their first Fenway match was electric, and with both clubs'€™ passionate supporters, tremendous worldwide following and strong ties to the City, the rematch is sure to be memorable." Liverpool is owned by Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the Red Sox, while AS Roma is owned by Boston businessman James Pallotta.
