Reds v Blues ’86 Cup Final Re-Union

Via Daily Post…

LIVERPOOL’S Capital of Culture chiefs have signed a major sponsorship deal to add their name to a restaging of the most famous derby match in Merseyside history.

The Liverpool Culture company has negotiated a £35,000 agreement which will see Everton and Liverpool legends run out in kits bearing the ’08 logo.

The teams, who met at Wembley in the first all Merseyside FA Cup final of 1986, will face each other again at Anfield on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1 (2.30pm kick-off).

The historic reunion match has been organised by former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish, with all proceeds going to his wife Marina’s breast cancer charity.

He is bringing together a host of legendary names from Goodison and Anfield for a match which is already attracting worldwide interest and is expected to be a sell-out.
