The Reds, who last visited the country in 2009, will play as yet unnamed opposition in Bangkok's Rajamangala National Stadium on July 28.

Managing director Ian Ayre said: "We first went to Thailand in 2001 and this will be our fourth visit to the country, which we feel demonstrates our commitment to our fans in Thailand."

Liverpool, in a news release on their website, estimate they have more than 14 million followers in Thailand.

Other aspects of the tour are yet to be confirmed but there have previously been suggestions the club could play in Australia and Indonesia.
