Liverpool FC announced a second partnership in just as many days, but this time it's with Roblox online gaming platform. For a limited time, players will be able to kit out their characters in Liverpool red and choose between 11 players.

For the uninitiated, Roblox is a global platform that counts more than 90 million players, and the event comes just in time for Liverpool FC's USA pre-season tour.

"From today and for a limited time this summer, Roblox users the world over can represent their favourite Liverpool FC (LFC) players on Roblox by decking out their in-game avatar in the club's brand-new 2019/20 home kit", Roblox Corporation wrote in their blog.

Liver Bird crest is, of course, there, and there's a numbered shirt for each of the players from the LFC first team, including Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Divock Origi, etc.

Roblox's chief business officer Craig Donato said the company's delighted to bring the club's rich legacy and winning spirit to the game.

"The Roblox community will jump at the chance to show their support for one of the world’s most storied football clubs and step into the shoes of their favorite Liverpool FC player", he said.

LFC's senior vice president of marketing Drew Crisp said the partnership is an ideal opportunity to inspire the club's younger fans, and bring them closer through video games.

"This is a great opportunity for young fans to show their support during our pre-season tour in the USA and play in any of the Roblox games as one of their favourite LFC players", he said.

So, Roblox players can go get their avatar outfits for free, while the game's junior members can help themselves to an exclusive virtual scarf with LFC's legendary "You'll Never Walk Alone" motto on it.
