An Ireland legends XI will face a Liverpool legendsÂ XIÂ inÂ aid ofÂ the Sean Cox fund.
The match will take place at the Aviva Stadium on April 12th, and there will also be a gala dinner afterwards.
According to the FAI, “Former Reds will line up against an Ireland XI legends team with proceeds raised from the game donated to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust”.
Full details of the match including ticket information and the players involved will be released in due course.
Sean, a 53-year-old Reds fan from County Meath, was attacked by Roma fans outside Anfield last year, suffering life threatening injuries which left him in a coma.
“Iâ€™d also like to thank the club, players and those former players who will be playing in the match for their continued support. We are also working with LFC on a number of other initiatives that will help to support Seanâ€™s care in the years ahead.”
“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.”
