Liverpool will host a fundraising legends match in Dublin in April where former players of the club will take on the Republic of Ireland national team.

The money collected from the match will go to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust. Sean Cox is a Liverpool fan who was severely injured in an attack outside Anfield prior to Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final leg against AS Roma.

Cox’s wife Martina said, “Sean has been supporting Liverpool all of his life and to have this match in Dublin in his name will be a special day. It’s going to be a very long and slow process for Sean’s recovery and I’d like to thank the overwhelming support Liverpool fans have shown.”

Liverpool’s CEO Peter Moore said of the event, “We’re all behind Sean and his family. We hope this unique legends game in Ireland’s capital will be a huge success and help generate vital funds to support Sean’s rehabilitation.

The solidarity shown from supporters throughout the world for Sean is incredible and we thank everyone for their continued support, including the Football Association of Ireland and its CEO, John Delaney, in helping to arrange this game.”
