      Was that the game in St Louis?  I was at that one as well. 

      I've also been to Soldier Field (Olympiacos) and Fenway 6 years ago to see us take on Roma. 

      I'm gonna try to get to South Bend in a few weeks to see us play Dortmund at Notre Dame.

      That was the match. Hope you have a great time. Wish I could go as well but them's the bounces.

      Isn't it already sold out? Is this just to promote the Liverpool "brand" ?

      As for the demand, I get it as going overseas is not an option for most American fans (or maybe it's a once in a lifetime trip - I've been lucky enough to go a half-dozen times but luck has run out for me).

      But a single match here is no small price tag. I suppose selling 80 % of the seats at those prices spins the amount of cash all parties are looking for.
       

      I think the fan section is sold out but not the general wicked expensive seats.No clue what Barnes was talking about don't go to the bar that held it,he's in Nyc wednesday after work. Did see Ian Rush showed up out your way at the speedway but the club didn't tell the supporters lot out there.Also threw out a first pitch at Cubs/White Sox game.Would imagine a few more of these type things.Boston had an outdoor viewing for the yanks women yesterday,dunno if LFC had a presence there.

      I guess it is all aimed at the casual sport fan, someone who isn't going to become a supporter of any football team, but might be willing to go to "an event" at a place like Notre Dame or Fenway. The diehards already know about it and will go in numbers.

      Anything at Fenway Park or Yankees Stadium becomes an event and local media all want a piece. In other words, play at Yankee Stadium and 25 million locals will here about it not to mention the national media attention.
      The Notre Dame game will achieve national notoriety simply because the national media devours anything to do with Notre Dame.

      Remember, Fenway Group founding partner Tom Werner's expertise is US TV and media and knows all the major players here.
      Anyone who watches NBCSports PL games in the states know how much attention LFC gets on that network...even when the team was struggling for 4th place or worse.
      LFC's status grows by the day in the states.

      Capitalising on England's womens world cup campaign and the USA team.  For what was such a marginal sport here in the UK the Eng v USA semi-final was the most watched network TV programme of the year.  Whether that improves average attendances at the games above 1000 remains to be seen but from a PR point of view then I can see why LFC are doing it.

      Wouldn't surprise me if LFC Women's team landed some kind of marquee US signing during this trip!

      The Women's World Cup was watched in the same way as the Olympics. It was more to do with supporting the country than the sport.

      This featured the best of Women's football, and yet the standard was low. In Women's league football, it is obviously far lower. Not worth the attention.

      The quality doesn't really matter so much as long as its entertaining to watch and competitive, in that regard I thought the USA v England match was actually quite good

      My first thought was fsg testing the water for a new Boston women's team but no doubt lfc women's need a few marquee players if they wanna compete.I'm curious whether lfcboston people would go to watch an lfc womens team friendly against a lower league non boston team? my guess is no.And for all the hype/love the USA world cup team gets the NWSL still struggles to get any recognition. Anyways still no news on public training,appearences and that kinda stuff. :confused-smiley-013:

      I'm interested in attending the Yankee Stadium match, but it's dependent on who travels over here.

      I'm reminded of John Henry (or was it Gordon?) asking Charlie Adam if he ever watched cricket.

      You won't get Bobby, Allison or Sadio. Not sure about Mo.

      Doesn’t matter who is there for me.  I’ll be there.
