This weekend’s Premier League fixture against Burnley will see Liverpool FC celebrate the work of LFC Foundation during the club’s annual Community Day.

The match at Anfield will highlight the work of LFC Foundation, the club’s official charity, through a range of activities throughout the day, giving supporters an opportunity to learn more about the incredible work it does across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.

In the last 12 months alone, LFC Foundation supported 123,000 people across all programmes ranging from sport and physical activity to youth intervention and education. Read more about its work over the last year in the latest impact report.

LFC Foundation staff will be in the fan zone pre-match and around the ground, while young participants from its programmes will be pitchside to welcome the teams out ahead of kick-off, proudly waving LFC Foundation flags.

Children from local primary schools will also be in attendance and will take part in a half-time penalty shootout so keep an eye out for them and give them a warm welcome to the pitch.

Supporters will also be able to get their hands on the match-worn shirts from the game, which will be auctioned off in the coming weeks to raise funds for LFC Foundation, so look out on the Foundation’s social media channels for updates.

Matt Parish, chief executive of LFC Foundation, said: “Community Day is always a special occasion and it’s brilliant for us to have the support of the match-going fans and to be able to shine a light on the work we are doing here at LFC Foundation.

“The support we get from the fans at Anfield is incredible and we are very grateful for that, the money we raise through days like this really helps us to continue doing what we do best within our community and we can’t thank the fans enough for their continued support.”

A reminder that you can support the work of LFC Foundation by joining us at the next legends charity match at Anfield in March. Almost 40,000 tickets have been sold already and you can get yours now here. All proceeds from the game will go towards the life-changing work of LFC Foundation.
