Billy Hogan, Chief Commercial Officer, Liverpool FC said: “The Norwegian club is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and wanted to secure landmark fixtures, which we are delighted to be part of. We last played Vålerenga in 2011 and before that in 2008 so we are thrilled to be meeting them again this summer.

“Liverpool FC has a large fan base in Norway and this fixture allows us to bring the Club closer to those Norwegian fans that cannot make it to Anfield to see their team play”.

“We have established a very good connection with Liverpool FC over the years and are very happy to welcome them back to Oslo. Liverpool is a huge club with a large following in Norway and this will be a large happening for those with both blue and red hearts” comments Pål Breen, CEO of Vålerenga.

The Reds visited Oslo to play Vålerenga in August 2008 as part of a pre-season friendly and won 4-1. The last meeting was also part of pre-season in August 2011 where the clubs drew 3-3.
