There are no points or trophies at stake, but this game will still be a real occasion for the fans. On 24 March FC Bayern Legends face Liverpool Legends in a charity match at Anfield. Both teams are among the most successful in Europe, so it’s no surprise great players will take to the field in this meeting.

World Cup, European Cup and Champions League winners will lace up their boots on both sides. Hans-Jörg Butt, Lothar Matthäus, Bixente Lizarazu, Sammy Kuffour, Zé Roberto, Giovane Elber, Luca Toni and Roy Makaay to name but a few, will don the shirt of the German record champions.

In addition Xabi Alonso will feature for both FCB and the 18-time English champions from Liverpool. Alongside him will be other famous names including keeper Jerzy Dudek, Jamie Carragher, John Arne Riise, Gary McAllister, Luis García, Dirk Kuyt and of course fan-favourite Steven Gerrard.

These former champions are coming out of retirement for a good cause, and to show they can still play.
