Manchester City and Liverpool will meet at Yankee Stadium in New York later this year.

Both clubs have confirmed that they will come up against each other as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup this summer.

City captain Vincent Kompany said it was a great thrill to be facing the Reds at the famed Yankee Stadium after they beat Chelsea there 5-3 last year.

"City have always enjoyed terrific support across the five boroughs having visited the states many times," Kompany told the club's official website.

"The passion of our New York fans was clear for all to see when we played at Yankee Stadium last year.

"It was the highlight of our post-season tour and the players are relishing the opportunity to return for the Guinness International Champions Cup."

The match comes at a great time for City who are building their incoming MLS franchise New York City who will enter the North American domestic league in 2015.

This year the International Champions Cup tournament features City, Liverpool, Manchester United, AC Milan, AS Roma, Inter Milan, Olympiakos and Real Madrid.
