A host of Liverpool Legends have signed up for a charity game in aid of the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.
The Reds will take on Republic of Ireland Legends on Friday, April 12 to raise money to fund vital rehabilitation care for Sean, who suffered life-changing injuries when he was attacked outside Anfield ahead of the Champions League semi-final against Roma last April.
LFC ambassador Ian Rush and Jason McAteer were joined by Sean’s wife, Martina Cox, and trustee of the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust, Stephen Felle, for the launch in Dublin.

Glen Johnson, who recently announced his retirement, will make his Liverpool Legends debut alongside the likes of Sander Westerveld, Jerzy Dudek, Patrik Berger, Vladimir Smicer, Salif Diao, Robbie Fowler, Rush and Djibril Cisse.
Robbie Keane, McAteer, John Aldridge and Phil Babb will play for both teams.
Republic of Ireland Legends boss Mick McCarthy will also be able to call on the likes of Kevin Kilbane, Ian Harte, Lee Carsley and Liam Lawrence.
“This game is so important to everyone playing in it, we want the best for Sean and his family and that means raising money playing this game to support his ongoing rehabilitation,” Rush said.
“Dublin is a special place to play when you’re a Red but playing in honour of Sean will make this a very special night and I hope our supporters will continue the incredible support they’ve already shown and turn up for Sean on April 12.
The game at the Aviva Stadium will kick off at 7.45pm and ticket prices will start at €20 for adults, €10 for under 16s, and a family ticket (two adults and two children) will be priced at €70.
Tickets for the game go on general sale via Ticketmaster on Thursday February 14 at 10am, with pre-sales for LFC Members, season ticket holders and official LFC Supporters’ Clubs taking place beforehand.
