Brendan Rodgers' men will take on the A-League side at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on July 24.

The fixture forms part of a pre-season tour that will also see the Reds visit Thailand.

Managing director Ian Ayre told Liverpool's official website: "This will be the first time that the club has visited Australia to play a match and we are delighted to be playing against Melbourne Victory, one of the most successful clubs in the A-League.

"We know we have a large fan base in Australia and New Zealand and this visit 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.

"We are very much looking forward to playing in Melbourne and giving our supporters a chance to see the team up close."

The match in Melbourne is expected to attract more than 80,000 fans, and will come four days after Manchester United play an A-League All-Stars side at Sydney's Olympic Stadium.

Melbourne Victory chairman Anthony Di Pietro said: "Liverpool are one of the most famous clubs on the planet and the fact that they've opted to play Melbourne Victory on their first-ever tour to Australia is great recognition for our club and the progress we've made in our short history.

"This truly is a momentous occasion for not only football fans, but sport fans in general, and where better to host such an event than one of the world's most iconic sporting arenas - the Melbourne Cricket Ground."
