Liverpool are to play a game in South Africa this summer.

Liverpool will play a post-season friendly against Ajax Cape Town in South Africa at the Cape Town stadium on May 21 - the first time they have been to the country since 1994.

Billy Hogan, chief commercial officer, told the club’s official website: "It will be fantastic for the club to return to South Africa after almost 20 years. We know we have a large fanbase in South Africa which is rapidly growing, in the last eight months the number of South African fans visiting the club’s website has doubled.

"This visit is part of our off-season activity and shows our commitment to bringing the club closer to our fans all over the globe, no matter how far away from Anfield they may live."
