BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Two English soccer teams are going to kick up their rivalry in here in Baltimore.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Liverpool Football Club will square off in an all-Premier League soccer match on July 28 at M&T Bank Stadium.

The  two teams are part of the Barclays Premier League, one of the most competitive and elite soccer leagues in the world.

This will be the third soccer match at the stadium. Baltimore Ravens’ President Dick Cass hopes this isn’t the last Baltimore will see of these exciting matches.

“This match is another fantastic special event that we are bringing to our city and as these events continue to succeed we will continue to bring them to the fans of Baltimore,” he said.

Governor Martin O’ Malley agrees and is excited to see the two teams here in Baltimore.

“Fans of all ages are excited with the opportunity to see some of the best soccer in the world played where they can enjoy it firsthand. The energy they bring to the stadium – particularly the youngsters – is electric, and I look forward to welcoming the match to Maryland,” said O’Malley.

The tickets, ranging from $36- $125  for the 1p.m. match, go on sale this Tuesday, April 3.

The game is part of a three-city tour that will also take the North London clubs to New York and Los Angeles.
