Tottenham Hotspur to play Liverpool this summer in Baltimore
Baltimore, Md. – The Baltimore Ravens, Maryland Stadium Authority and Maryland Office of Sports Marketing today announced Tottenham Hotspur Football Club will play Liverpool Football Club in an all-Premier League soccer match on Saturday, July 28 at 1:00 p.m. EST at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md. The match-up features two of the most popular teams in the Barclays Premier League, widely regarded as the most competitive and elite soccer league in the world.
The Baltimore Ravens have worked hard all year to earn a spot in the NFL playoffs as one of the top-seeded teams. The motivation was to secure home-field advantage. The Ravens fell one game shy of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, but they did earn a first round bye and a home game against the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs this coming weekend. For the Ravens, a home game means an advantage on the field, but for the city and state it means dollars being pumped into the local economy.
