Liverpool plays a special Legends game at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to support Sean Cox, the fan who was severely injured last season by an attack by Roma fans.
Former Reds players will take action on April 12 against an Irish team from the Irish XI-emptying with proceeds donated to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust.
"Sean has supported Liverpool all his life and this match in Dublin in his name will be a special day", said Cox's wife Martina Cox.

& # 39; It's going to be a long and slow process for Sean's recovery and I want to thank the overwhelming support that Liverpool fans have shown.
I also want to thank the club, players and those former players who will play in the match for their continued support.
We also work with LFC on a number of other initiatives that will help support Sean's care in the coming years. & # 39;
A bucket collection for the Premier League match in Cardiff earlier this season, with match funding from the LFC Foundation, raised £ 59,000.

The club and the players of the first team also support the profession privately.
& # 39; We are all behind Sean and his family.
We hope that this unique Legends game in the capital of Ireland will be a huge success and contribute to generating vital funds to support Sean's rehabilitation & # 39 ;, said Peter Moore, president and director from Liverpool.
