An Exciting Clash at Anfield: LFC Legends vs. Ajax Legends
Liverpool FC Legends are gearing up for an exhilarating charity match against the AFC Ajax Legends, scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2024. This much-anticipated event, taking place at the iconic Anfield stadium at 3pm GMT, promises to be a showcase of footballing prowess and a celebration of the sport’s rich heritage.
Eighth Annual Charity Match: A Testament to Tradition and Philanthropy
Marking the eighth iteration of the annual Legends charity match, this year’s event sees AFC Ajax making their inaugural visit to Anfield. These matches have become a staple in the football calendar, not only for their nostalgic value but also for their significant charitable impact. Through the unwavering support of AXA, Liverpool FC’s official training partner, the event dedicates 100% of its proceeds to the LFC Foundation and its associated charities.
A Remarkable Legacy of Giving: Over £1.45 Million Raised
The LFC Foundation’s recent Legends matches against Manchester United and Celtic have been phenomenal successes, collectively raising an astounding £1.45 million. These funds play a crucial role in supporting various initiatives across the Liverpool City Region and beyond. Charitable entities like Cash for Kids, IntoUniversity, and Forever Reds, the club’s former players association, have also greatly benefited from these fundraisers.
Liverpool’s Football Royalty to Take the Helm
Sir Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush, two titans of Liverpool’s football history, will return to the dugout to steer the LFC Legends team. Their involvement not only adds prestige to the match but also serves as a beacon for fundraising efforts. The roster of LFC Legends participating in the match will be announced in the weeks to come, with updates anticipated across various media channels.
A Community United: The Impact of the LFC Foundation
Matt Parish, Chief Executive of the LFC Foundation, expressed his excitement for the event. “We are thrilled to host our eighth legends fixture at Anfield,” he said. “The unwavering support for our legends matches enables us to extend our outreach to more children, young people, and families, both locally and internationally. The substantial funds raised in our previous matches have already made a significant difference, and we are eager to continue this positive impact.”
