The Reds will travel to Bangkok on July 28 as part of their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia presented by Standard Chartered.
And as Rodgers explained in an interview about the trip, he is relishing the chance to lead Liverpool out to country that is estimated to have more than 14 million followers of the club.
Brendan, Liverpool will head to Asia again this summer for pre-season. It's not the club's first time in Thailand, but it'll be your first time as manager. How much are you looking forward to that?
"Very much. It's a country that's got real passion and a continent that's got a real love of Liverpool. I think it's the fourth time we'll be going out there [to Thailand] and it's certainly a trip we're really looking forward to. Obviously we're out there to work, but we're also out there to meet all of the supporters and connect with them. We can't wait."
I was reading the other day, there are 14 million Liverpool fans in Thailand - that's not bad, is it?
"It's more than not bad, it's incredible really! It just shows you the sheer scale of the club. I knew Liverpool was a big club - but I didn't realise how big until I was in here working on a day-to-day basis. It's great for those supporters that we can actually take the players and everyone across to there because they don't get many opportunities to see them live and first hand. It'll be a huge honour as the manager to take the club there and a great chance to build our links with Thailand and the people."
Are you ready for some humidity?
"One of our staff members has just done a 'reccy' and he came back and talked about the humidity and heat. We've got a great sports science and medical team that will look to prepare the players as well as they possibly can for that. We know the conditions will be difficult, but we're there to work, so we'll get our work done."
How important is pre-season for a manager?
"It's very important, especially for us this year - the landscape is different for us. We'll arrive into pre-season being in a much better position than what we were in last [summer]. There was a new manager coming in, we had to cut certain areas of the squad, it was a difficult window for us in the summer and then we went into the beginning of the season and the first six months in a difficult position.
"In the second half of the season, the group has improved and then come the summer we'll be really looking to build on that. That'll be about bringing in new players and also improving the model of our game. Pre-season gives you the opportunity to do that - it gives you the opportunity to try new ideas, develop and improve the work you've been developing over the course of the season and then really prepare the mindset for what's ahead going into the new season. It allows us to rubberstamp our objectives and then hopefully come the start of the season, we'll be ready."
Do you get any downtime in pre-season?
"Pre-season is a very, very busy period because there are lots of double sessions. You're training in the morning, recovering and then training again later in the afternoon. It's a real period for work and that is something that's important for us. You also need recovery and recuperation time, so there is a little bit of downtime but mainly that will be for the players. For the staff and the manager, it's about preparing and getting the preparation right for your training sessions, meetings and for building the team. There's not a lot of rest - it's about work and that's what the preparation phase is about."
