England’s Liverpool will face Germany’s Borussia Dortmund on July 22 in Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium in an International Champions Cup soccer match, the Washington Post’s soccer Twitter account reported Saturday.
An official announcement of the two teams headed for Charlotte is scheduled for Thursday at 11 a.m. at Romare Bearden Park as part of a national announcement.
The event is open to the public and will include giveaways and photo opportunities.
The ICC features 18 of the world's top soccer clubs. Charlotte hosted ICC matches in front of large crowds from 2014 to 2016 (but not in 2017) — Liverpool played Italy’s A.C. Milan in 2014, England’s Chelsea faced Paris Saint-Germain in 2015, and Bayern Munich played Inter Milan in 2016.
This summer’s game will feature Liverpool, which has advanced to the semifinals of Europe’s Champions League, and Dortmund, one of the top clubs in Germany’s Bundesliga.
Adding spice to the game will be Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp facing Dortmund, the team he managed before going to Liverpool.
