Liverpool FC confirm Gerrard testimonial

Steven Gerrard

Liverpool Football Club will be holding a testimonial match for skipper Steven Gerrard against Greek side Olympiacos.  The match will take place on August 3, Liverpools only pre-season fixture at Anfield.

Gerrard’s opponents are the side he scored a dramatic 86 minute goal to send Liverpool into the Champions League knockout stages in 2004- which they eventually went on to win.

Gerrard said:

“I am delighted to be honoured by Liverpool with a testimonial match and particularly thrilled that Olympiacos have accepted my invitation to play the fixture.  Last time we met proved to be such a memorable game both for me personally and Liverpool Football Club.  I am also especially grateful that Olympiacos have truly embraced the aim of this match and chosen to donate their fee to charity.  I am looking forward to what I know will be a fantastic game and a wonderful occasion.”

All the money raised from events celebrating Steven’s testimonial year will go to the Steven Gerrard Foundation (SGF), a registered charity — stevengerrardfoundation.org
