Photos: Fenway Park Hosts Liverpool and Sevilla F.C.

For the first time since 2014, Liverpool Football Club returned to Fenway Park over the weekend as part of their 2019/2020 preseason preparations. The team mad its way to Boston for a welcome return to the home of the Red Sox to meet Spain’s oldest football club, Sevilla FC. 

It’s hard to believe, but this now marked my third time shooting Liverpool in Boston. I’ll always remember this year’s installment of the game as one of the hottest shooting days on record. So hot that I wore shorts to shoot in. If you know me, you know I don’t wear shorts while working.

Here’s a selection of images from Wednesday’s “Football At Fenway” friendly match between Liverpool FC and AS Roma. 

Baseball and football don’t normally add up, so it was quite interesting to watch one of the world’s most iconic and historic stadiums go through this huge transformation. I think the park looked really good, and the atmosphere was completely different than it is during a normal baseball game. 

I tried to keep that in mind while shooting. From a photographer’s perspective, it was actually very refreshing to have a break from baseball at Fenway Park. I was energized by it, and I roamed every inch of every corner of the stadium to capture the scene. 

Coincidentally, I just spent time in England and Italy, so having these two teams in Boston served as a nice reminder dosage of British and Italian sport and culture.

Football is back at Fenway Park after a two year hiatus! As part of Fenway’s 100th Anniversary celebrations, Liverpool FC will take on AS Roma in a friendly match on the baseball field turned football pitch tomorrow evening. 

Today, Liverpool took a few hours to have a light practice, appear for a few photo ops, and sign autographs for fans. 

The fans at the park were amped up today, which has me really excited to shoot tomorrow. The park looks great, so I know the atmosphere will be electric and will make for some good looking, unique images.  

Be sure to check back for shots from the game! In the meantime, here are some more images from today, courtesy of the one and only Mike Ivins.
