NewsLFC Legends to face Celtic Legends at Anfield in March 2023
LFC Foundation's next legends charity match will see Liverpool FC Legends take on Celtic Legends on Saturday March 25, 2023 at Anfield (3pm GMT kick-off), presented by AXA, the club's official training partner.
This is the first meeting at Anfield between legends from the two clubs, which are linked by players, managers and of course a much-loved football anthem in You’ll Never Walk Alone.
One hundred per cent of the proceeds raised from the fixture will support a range of LFC Foundation’s and partner charities’ programmes, including schools, inclusive sports, social action, health and wellbeing, and food poverty.
The previous six LFC Foundation legends charity matches held at Anfield have raised a total of £5 million for the Reds’ charity and its charity partners to fund the incredible work.
And in the last 12 months alone, LFC Foundation has supported more than 83,000 people, almost two-thirds of those coming from the most deprived areas in the UK. It has also delivered £8 million into the local economy and nearly £25 million in health benefits.
Celtic’s official charity, Celtic FC Foundation, which provides assistance to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people, will also receive a donation alongside Forever Reds – the official LFC former players association – which, among other things, provides support to the club’s former players in need of care.
A stellar line-up of players will be announced in the coming weeks for the legends charity match, which is brought to you by LFC Foundation in association with Forever Reds.
In September, LFC Legends were crowed Legends of The North after beating Manchester United Legends over a thrilling two-leg spectacle at Old Trafford and Anfield.
The home game raised more than £500,000, which benefited LFC Foundation’s charity partners, Cash For Kids, and IntoUniversity, as well as Forever Reds and the Reds’ charity’s local community, social action and football projects.
Matt Parish, chief executive of LFC Foundation, said: “We are pleased to announce our seventh home official legends charity match against Celtic Legends next year and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the LFC family to Anfield for a fun-filled afternoon.
“I’m always overwhelmed by the support and generosity we receive that enables us to support more children, young people and families in underserved communities across the Liverpool City Region and beyond through our programmes and our charity partners.
“Both clubs have a shared history and I’ve no doubt that the legends will put on a fantastic and competitive display of football for all to enjoy.”
