Bradford City will play host to UEFA Champions League winners Liverpool FC in a history-making pre-season friendly on Sunday July 14, designed to raise funds for the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

The charity has been formed by Bantams legend Stephen Darby, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2018, alongside close friend Chris Rimmer - who was himself diagnosed with the condition five years ago.

The 3.00pm fixture will mark the first time Liverpool FC have visited the Northern Commercials Stadium in close to two decades.

City defeated the six-time European champions, back in May 2000, as a David Wetherall header famously sealed the Bantams’ survival in England’s top flight - on the final day of the season.

Speaking of the occasion, Darby said: “I am extremely grateful City and Liverpool will be playing each other during pre-season in support of the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.

“They are two amazing clubs, who formed a massive part of my career. Both will always hold a special place in my heart.

“I cannot thank both clubs and sets of fans enough for their support.”

Tickets will EXCLUSIVELY go on sale - on Monday (June 10) - to ‘Our City’ 2019-20 season-ticket holders, who will have until Saturday (June 22) to secure a seat.

The all-ticket match will see City supporters take up residence in The Kop, North West Corner and The JCT600 Stand (Blocks EXK and EXJ will be reserved for hospitality guests).
