Two British footballing giants collide as Liverpool Legends take on Celtic FC Legends in a charity match this March.
The two clubs have dominated in their divisions and are arguably two of the biggest clubs in world football. They’ve both been blessed with fantastic managers, fans and of course players with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Henrik Larsson and of course, Kenny Dalglish to name a few.
Now the two are joining forces in order to raise money for a great cause, with a load of past legends coming together to grace the pitch again in what should be a fantastic event.
Here is absolutely everything you need to know about it.
Liverpool Legends take on Celtic Legends on Saturday 25th March 2023, with kick-off set to take place at 3 PM.
The match will be played at the home stadium of Liverpool, Anfield. Will this prove an advantage for the Merseyside legends? They’ll certainly have more support on the day from the fans.
Here is the full list of players from either side so far.
