Liverpool FC Foundation today announced it will stage its fourth official legends charity game at Anfield next year.
Liverpool FC Legends will take on Barça Legends on Saturday March 28, 2020 in aid of the club’s official charity.
An array of star players are already confirmed for the Reds line-up, including Fernando Torres, Jose Enrique and Fabio Aurelio for the first time back playing at Anfield.
Luis Garcia, Patrik Berger, Jerzy Dudek, Jason McAteer and Vladimir Smicer are also returning to the legends’ squad.
Barça Legends’ side will feature some Camp Nou icons, including Edgar Davids, Patrick Kluivert, Juliano Belletti and Javier Saviola.
All of the proceeds from the match will go to LFC Foundation, which brings together the LFC family to create life-changing opportunities.
LFC Foundation will make a donation to the Barça Foundation, which uses sport and its values to help bring about real change in the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.
Through LFC Foundation’s Community Fund, £100k will also be made available again to local charities and community groups. The fund, which provides grants of up to £3k and more in exceptional circumstances, is available to help grassroots charities in Merseyside that support children and young people who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect.
Grant recipients from the first round of the £100k Community Fund, which was launched following the official legends’ game with AC Milan in March, included Tall Ships Youth Trust, The Big Help Project, the Yellow House, Wigzee Woo, Centre 56, and more than 30 others.
In addition to this, money raised from the fixture earlier this year is being used to fund LFC Foundation’s partnership with Right To Play, which brings together two leaders in the fields of sport and play to benefit vulnerable children both at home and around the world.
Matt Parish, director of Liverpool FC Foundation, said: “We are so excited to be able to announce our fourth official legends charity match at Anfield next year. It’s set to be another competitive game against an outstanding Barça Legends team.
“The game is an opportunity for the LFC family to come together and enjoy a fantastic day out at Anfield to help raise funds for the club’s charity, LFC Foundation.
“The support we receive from our fans is overwhelming. To date they have helped us to raise £2.8m from our legends charity games at Anfield, which is just amazing.
“These funds mean that we can continue our work using the power of the LFC badge to bring together the LFC family to help transform lives of people across the Liverpool city region and beyond.”
Tickets for the game are priced at £25 for adults, £7 for juniors and £17 for over 65s.
