A group of Borussia Moenchengladbach supporters will arrive on Merseyside today for a 21st time to continue a relationship with Liverpool Football Club which has thrived since their maiden visit in 1992.

Representing BMG Fan Projekt, the German side's official supporters' club, the travellers will support the Reds in their Anfield clash against Hull City on New Year's Day during the Bundesliga winter break.

The mutual friendship between the two teams started during the 1970s when the Reds met Moenchengladbach in three European clashes, beginning with the 1973 UEFA Cup final.

In an unforgettable gesture following the Hillsborough disaster, Borussia supporters donated approximately £7,000 to the families of the 96 who lost their lives at the tragedy in 1989.

A number of Liverpool fans conduct an annual return journey of friendship to Moenchengladbach, with the eighth such trip in 2014 currently being organised by Graham Agg.

Any Reds supporters interested in making the trip to Germany should contact the organiser via email: grahamlfc@aol.com.

Agg said: "It is a friendship absolutely unique in world football and something to which both club's officials and their supporters should be proud to behold.

"I, on behalf of all Liverpool supporters, wish the Gladbach fans a superb stay in Liverpool and a Happy New Year for 2014".
