As the Official Sponsor of the Liverpool FC Legends team, we were on hand to provide the players with some much needed post-game refreshments at the Hope Street Hotel, giving the Legends a chance to toast their successes.
In the lead-up to the much anticipated star-studded game, we ran a competition to give one lucky fan the chance to attend plus a pre-match meal for two at local Liverpool hot-spot, Amalia.
We also offered match attendees 10% off a bottle of LFC branded Liverpool Vodka from the Anfield Club Shop, simply by showing their match ticket for up to one week after the game!
A packed out Anfield stadium was treated to a spectacular display this weekend from two teams of true legends.
54,014 fans created a charged atmosphere of anticipation before two teams of true Legends took to the pitch at Anfield. Familiar faces for the LFC Legends included Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman – captained by club ambassador Robbie Fowler, with Ian Rush fulfilling the role once more of player/manager.
Two players made their debuts for the LFC Legends: Dirk Kuyt (who last pulled on a Liverpool shirt back in 2012) looked overjoyed to be back, whilst Xabi Alonso returned to play a full 45 minutes for each side.
No German side has ever won a game at Anfield and an all-star lineup, featuring some of the most iconic Red men, ensured that remained the case. After going 3-0 up in the first half Fowler’s team looked in charge, but the boys from Bayern rose to the challenge in the last 45, equalising and then going ahead. An 87-minute surprise goal from defender Bjørn Tore Kvarme saw the Liverpool Legends secure the draw.
