Liverpool have just announced that they will warm-up for the upcoming 2022-23 English Premier League season with a friendly against Crystal Palace FC on 15 July 2022 at the Singapore Sports Hub. Liverpool also plan to hold an open training session the day before the match. 

The two sides have a history of thrilling encounters, most notably in the penultimate game of the 2013-14 season, when Crystal Palace came back from three goals down to snatch a point late on, effectively ending Liverpool's title challenge in a year where they had looked set to win the league after a long barren spell. Recently though, Liverpool have had the upper hand, and have taken six points off The Eagles this season.

  • McAteer comments on friendly 

With Liverpool's upcoming pre-season tour of Southeast Asia fast approaching, club legend Jason McAteer emphasised the importance of bringing fans closer to the club on a global scale, saying "we've never lost the relationship with our fans" and that "we try as hard as possible to bring [The Liverpool] experience to all parts of the globe. 

Tickets go on sale from May 17, and will be priced at $39 for the training session, and start from $149 for the match. With Liverpool having not visited the Lion City for a match since 2009, tickets are expected to be snapped up quickly. 

The Standard Chartered Singapore Trophy 2022 will be aired 'live' on Hub Premier – StarHub's new sports channel to be launched in July this year. Hub Premier will also telecast the much-anticipated Premier League, when the upcoming season kicks off in August 2022.

The talent of Liverpool's stars such as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, and Crystal Palace's key men like Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze means that it promises to be a thrilling encounter. 

Liverpool is renowned for having one of the largest fanbases worldwide, and as McAteer puts it, "the club is built on success and its unique in that and that's why its the biggest football club in the world".

This July, the thousands of Liverpool fans in Singapore will finally have the opportunity to catch their heroes in action.
