LFC Legends to take on Man Utd Legends in support of LFC Foundation
Liverpool FC Legends will face Manchester United Legends at Anfield on Saturday September 24, 2022 in a bid to retain their crown as Legends of The North.
LFC Legends won the first leg of the Legends of the North fixture in May, beating their Man United counterparts 3-1 at Old Trafford, with Mark Gonzalez scoring a fantastic brace.
The Reds will once again be managed by Sir Kenny Dalglish, with support from Ian Rush. A stellar line-up of Legends for both teams will be announced soon.
One-hundred per cent of the proceeds raised from the Legends of the North charity match, which is brought to you by LFC Foundation in association with Forever Reds – the official LFC former players’ association – will support a variety of LFC Foundation programmes, including #iWill, young people’s social action movement, as well as local community and football projects.
Funds will also be donated to LFC Foundation’s charity partners – Cash for Kids and IntoUniversity – to support their outstanding work across the Liverpool City Region. Forever Reds, which provides support to the club’s former players in need of care among other things, will also receive a proportion of the proceeds.
Matt Parish, chief executive of LFC Foundation, said: “It’s fantastic to be hosting our second charity match at Anfield this year, and we are once again looking forward to welcoming the LFC family back to enjoy another fun-filled afternoon of football with some of the greats. After such a great result at Old Trafford in May, we are anticipating a competitive return match for the Legends of the North title.
“The first leg raised £1.3m for the Manchester United Foundation and if we can look to match or exceed this it would make a huge difference to the programmes we offer across the Liverpool City Region, and our charity partners who we work alongside to reach and support more young people and families.”
