Rovers are pleased to confirm a flagship friendly at home to Champions League finalists Liverpool FC.

The exciting pre-season encounter will take place at Ewood Park on Thursday July 19th, kick-off 7.45pm.

Tickets will be priced at just £10 for adults, £5 for seniors (65+) and young adults (ages 18-21), and just £2 for juniors (under-18s). 

The game against Jurgen Klopp’s star-studded side will see some of the biggest names in European football come to town and will provide Tony Mowbray’s men with a terrific test ahead of Rovers’ return to the Championship in early August.

The two teams last met in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup during the 2014-15 season.

After holding Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield, Rovers produced another gallant performance in the replay, before being knocked out by Philippe Coutinho’s stunning second-half strike in front of over 28,000 fans at Ewood Park.

The club is hoping to attract another bumper crowd for this summer’s showpiece friendly, which is one of five fixtures confirmed to be played next month.
