Liverpool Football Club's official charity, the LFC Foundation, can today announce that it will stage its second official legends game at Anfield next year.
This time around, the LFC Legends will take on their Bayern Munich counterparts on Saturday March 24, 2018 in aid of the LFC Foundation.
The game will see club ambassador Robbie Fowler captain the Reds with LFC’s all-time top goalscorer Ian Rush set to act as player-manager once more.
Among the former players confirmed to play for Liverpool are Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Dirk Kuyt and Luis Garcia.
Xabi Alonso, meanwhile, will play for both teams, with Bayern also being able to call on the likes of Martin Demichelis, Bixente Lizarazu and Owen Hargreaves.
Ninety per cent of the proceeds from the match will go to the LFC Foundation, which aims to create life-changing opportunities for children and young people. The additional 10 per cent of the funds raised will be donated to Bayern’s charity 'FC Bayern Hilfe e.V'.
Money raised from last season’s charity game against Madrid has helped to fund a variety projects for the LFC Foundation and their charity partners with many more still in the pipeline.
One such project with IntoUniversity provides 1,000 local young people each year with a programme of personal and educational support to enable them to succeed at school and nurture young people’s aspirations.
Fowler said: "After the success of the first official legends game we are really looking forward to playing Bayern Munich next year. We hope to create another fun, entertaining yet competitive game for all our fans at Anfield, whilst helping to raise vital funds for the club’s official charity."
Andrea Cooper, head of the Liverpool FC Foundation, added: "We are delighted to be able to announce our second official legends charity match at Anfield and we are looking forward to welcoming our friends from Bayern Munich. Our fans were so supportive last year and helped us to raise over £1m for the Foundation.
"This year we hope to create another fantastic family event and with the help again of our fans to raise vital funds that we can use to make a positive difference to thousands of children and young people across Merseyside and beyond."
