Liverpool have confirmed a pre-season friendly against Norwegian top-flight side Valerenga on August 7.

The match, which will be played at the Ullevaal Stadium in Oslo, will follow a three-game pre-season tour of Australasia for Brendan Rodgers' side.

The Reds will face an Indonesia XI in Jakarta on July 20, then take on Australian A-League outfit Melbourne Victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground four days later, before playing Thailand in Bangkok on July 28.

The visit to Oslo has been arranged as part of Valerenga's 100th birthday celebrations. The club, managed by former Norway defender Kjetil Rekdal, were formed in July 1913.

Billy Hogan, Liverpool's chief commercial officer, told the club's official website: "We last played Valerenga in 2011 and before that in 2008 so we are thrilled to be meeting them again this summer.

"Liverpool FC has a large fan base in Norway and this fixture allows us to bring the club closer to those Norwegian fans that cannot make it to Anfield to see their team play."

Under Rafa Benitez in August 2008, Liverpool beat Valerenga 4-1 in a pre-season game in Oslo. Kenny Dalglish took the club back there in August 2011 for another friendly, which ended 3-3.
