Liverpool are set to play at Fenway Park - which could also see the Boston Redsox play an exhibition game in England.

NESN.com reports Boston's ownership group continues to explore more ways to expand the appeal of their organizations.

President and CEO Larry Lucchino said Saturday that he would like to have Liverpool, the English Barclays Premier League team purchased by the Sox' owners in the fall, to play a friendly match in Fenway by "next summer." That would follow up the match between Celtic FC of the Scottish Premier League and Sporting Clube de Portugal last July.

Also, the owners are wrapping their arms around the idea of sending their baseball team over the pond.

"If baseball wants to invite the Red Sox to play internationally, we're open to that," Lucchino said.

The Sox last played out of the country in 2008, when they opened the regular season with three games in the Tokyo Dome against Oakland.
