The unique concept has been inspired by the club’s 125th anniversary which will be officially marked on 3rd June 2017, when a season-long celebration will begin.

Former captain Gerrard and his former team mates Agger, McManaman and Carragher will complete the team of past and present players who will play this special game in honour of the club’s rich heritage on Wednesday 24th May.

Gerrard said: “It will be an honour to pull on the Red shirt and play football with an outstanding squad and former team mates - this is what Liverpool is all about, celebrating the family that has been around for 125 years.

“Our fans in Australia always give us a warm welcome so it’ll be a great feeling to see the ANZ Stadium turn red on 24th May.”
