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.

A true fan-favourite, Xabi Alonso helped the Reds on their way to claiming three trophies during the five years at Anfield. He proved to be a similarly useful asset for Bayern Munich, winning the Bundesliga for them during the last three seasons of his playing career. The Spaniard was on winning form for both sides throughout 90 minutes, with his classy free kick for Bayern proving to be a particular highlight.
