Liverpool-Manchester United Rivalry Comes To Singapore’s National Stadium In November

The Liverpool Masters return to Singapore to take on their age-old rivals the Manchester United Masters in The Castlewood Group Battle of the Reds 2015 at the National Stadium on Nov 14.

Among the confirmed names are Luis Garcia, who joins the Liverpool Masters line up this year, according to a press release from organisers. The lineup also includes Jerzy Dudek, Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Dietmar Hamann.

Garcia, who featured in the UEFA Champions League winning team in Istanbul in 2005, was also instrumental in the club clinching the UEFA Super Cup that year.

Over on the Manchester United Masters side, three players from the United double winning team of 1995/96 will also be in attendance, namely Andy Cole, Paul Parker and Lee Sharpe. They will be joined by Ronny Johnsen and Karel Poborsky.

United’s Lee Sharpe said: “We don’t like losing to Liverpool and they don’t like losing to us. They got the better of us the last few times we played them and I don’t know if revenge is the right word but we certainly owe them one, that’s for sure.”

A full house crowd attended last year’s Liverpool Masters match up against a team of ex-Singapore internationals at the Jalan Besar Stadium, where the Reds won 3-1.

Tickets are priced at S$19, S$30 and S$45 and are already on sale via SportsHubTix. Family packages for two adults and two children below the age of 12 are also available. 11,000 tickets have been released, organisers say.

Doors open at 5pm and kick off is at 6pm.
