BT Sport will be providing live coverage of the 'Celebration of the 96' charity match at Anfield, which kicks off at 2pm BST on Easter Monday, April 21.

The match sees a local and international Liverpool legends XI take to the field, managed by Kenny Dalglish and Gerard Houllier respectively.

A superb line-up of former LFC stars have agreed to appear in the match that celebrates the 96 people who lost their lives at Hillsborough, including BT Sport pundits David James and Steve McManaman, as well as the likes of Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Peter Beardsley, Jan Molby, Luis Garcia and John Barnes.

The event was planned by the Hillsborough Family Support Group (HFSG) with support from Liverpool FC, and all proceeds will be split between the HFSG and the club's charity, the Liverpool FC Foundation.

There will also be a community football session on the pitch involving first-team players, plus Academy and Ladies squads. At half-time, there will be a celebrity penalty shoot-out, with famous Reds fans such as comedians John Bishop and Russell Howard stepping up to the spot.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: "We are delighted to be able to support the Hillsborough Family Support Group and the Liverpool FC Foundation. This will be a very emotional occasion for everyone at Anfield on April 21 and for all the fans watching at home with BT Sport.

"While the event commemorates one of the blackest days in the modern history of football, the HFSG want this to be a celebration of the lives of the fans that died that day. Some of the greatest players to have worn the red shirt will be taking to the field."

BT Sport has made a donation to the fund to support the families, and viewers at home will also be able to donate via BT's MyDonate charity fundraising platform.
