Liverpool pre-season 2022: return date, tour, friendlies, fixture release date and more

All the details you need to know about Liverpool’s pre-season ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Liverpool’s players are set for a well-earned break following the conclusion of the 2021-22 season.

The Reds played 63 fixtures in total - every game possible - as they narrowly missed out on an unprecedented quadruple.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won the FA Cup and Carabao Cup - but finished a point behind Manchester City for the Premier League title and suffered Champions League final heartbreak against Real Madrid in Paris.

Some Liverpool players now have their feet up on their holidays, although many are away on international duty.

They’ll be given a few weeks’ rest before returning for duty ahead of the 2022-23 season.
