United vs Pool in The Castlewood Group Battle of the Reds 2015
Just like in last year's The Castlewood Group Liverpool Masters, the event will be a full-throttle 80-minute, 11-a-side full-field affair with bragging rights up for grabs.
The two sets of football legends will be doing battle on the grandest stage in Singapore – the 55,000 capacity National Stadium – in front of what will likely be a sea of red.
Liverpool stalwarts Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Dietmar Hamann and Jerzy Dudek have confirmed their return, and will be joined by at least one fresh face in 2005 Champions League winner Luis Garcia.
Meanwhile, Red Devils fans can look forward to seeing the likes of Paul Parker, Lee Sharpe, Andy Cole, Ronny Johnsen and Karel Poborsky line up on the other side of the pitch come November.
Despite their ages, there's still plenty on the line for both teams and there will be nothing holding them back once the referee blows the whistle to begin the contest.
"I think the competitive edge never leaves you. As soon as you get the boots on and step across the white line and get on the pitch, you want to win and do the best you can," says Sharpe, who was a member of Manchester United's 1995/96 double-winning team together with Cole and Parker.
"There’s always pressure against Liverpool. 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."
It's a sentiment that's shared by Castlewood Group CEO Chris Comer, who believes fans will be treated to an exciting contest between two fierce rivals, "The ‘red rivalry’ between Liverpool and Manchester United has been well-documented over the years, and we are excited to bring this to our doorstep here in Asia."
"With both teams being extremely popular in Singapore, the event has been upsized to the National Stadium so we can expect this match to be bigger than ever. We have kept the ticket price affordable as our way to give back to the local community, giving supporters the chance to get up close and personal with their idols."
Fans will be able to purchase tickets starting from $19, with 11,000 tickets released for initial sales. Family packages (two adults and two children below the age of 12) are also available.
