Liverpool Football Club are coming to Dublin this summer.

The Reds will take on Athletic Bilbao at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 5 August, just one week before the start of the new Premier League season, with a near full strength squad bound to be in place for the match.

Kick off on the day will be at 5.15pm.

Reds ambassador Ian Rush, who scored the goal against Athletic Bilbao last time the clubs met in 1983, said: “We always get such an amazing reception in Dublin.

“Even though this is a friendly game, I’m sure our incredible Irish supporters will make the atmosphere just as good when we meet Bilbao this time around.”

Ticket pre-sales will begin at 11am on Wednesday May 31 until midnight on Thursday June 1. Tickets will be on general sale from 11am on Friday June 2.
