Liverpool to play Brondby

Liverpool will begin their pre-season campaign with a friendly against Brondby in Denmark.

The Reds will play at the Brondby Stadion in Copenhagen on July 16 in what is the first of seven warm-up matches.

"Liverpool has a large following across Scandinavia, especially in Denmark, so it's really exciting that we will be bringing the club closer to our fans through this pre-season friendly against the biggest team in the country," said chief commercial officer Billy Hogan.

Following the trip to Denmark, Liverpool return to England to face Preston and then fly out to America for games against Roma, Olympiakos, Manchester City and AC Milan before returning home to host a final game against Borussia Dortmund on August 10.

Brendan Rodgers' men begin their Premier League season against Southampton at Anfield on August 16.
