Butlin Road to Host Coventry Liverpool Friendly
Rugby Town have landed a prestige fixture at their Butlin Road stadium, following the announcement this week by Coventry City that they will play a pre-season friendly there against a Liverpool FC Under 23 squad.
City’s first team will take on the Champions League winners’ development side on Wednesday July 24, a day after the Sky Blues’ own youngsters are scheduled to take on Rugby at the ground.
The Liverpool academy has had a long history of producing world class players over the years, with England full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold the latest in a long line of those to come through the Anfield club’s ranks - following the likes of Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard onto an international stage.
The Coventry-Liverpool game will kick-off at 7pm, with admission on the gate priced at £10 for adults, £8 for concessions and £3 for under 16s.
The game is a day after Rugby entertain a Coventry Under 23 squad at Butlin Road.
