Team Shevchenko 2 v Team Zinchenko 2

Game4Ukraine was held on 5th August 2023 to a sold out crowd at Stamford Bridge. The teams managed by Arsene Wenger and Emma Hayes and consisting of over 60 legends plus celebrities put on a great spectacle with the match finishing 2-2. The game produced some incredible performances including a Clarence Seedorf screamer lighting up the match of footballing royalty and going viral



Team Ferdinand 2(5) v Team Shearer 2(3)

Working with Sky Entertainment, with over sixty celebrities and legends we created an incredible TV show raising over a £1million for the survivors of the Grenfell Tower Disaster and to put it back on the front pages. The line up included; Jose Mourinho, Jamie Dornan, Damian Lewis, Sir Mo Farah, Kasabian, Rita Ora, Emilie Sande, Wretch 32, Jarvis Cocker, Russell Howard, Lee Mack, Olly Murs, Tinie Tempah, Santan Dave, Marcus Mumford, Jamie Redknapp and Les Ferdinand, as well as firefighters who had attended the blaze along with survivors from the tragedy all coming together for an unforgettable, emotionally charged match with incredible half time live music performances


Farewell to the Boleyn

England 2 v Germany 7

The England team turned up to have some fun, the German team came to avenge 50 years of hurt. Once Rio Ferdinand v Michael Ballack became Michael Ballack v Jack Whitehall, the game was up. Despite the F2 boys roared on by manager Ray Winstone and assistant coach ex Heavyweight champ David Haye - a German team full of former internationals had just a little too much for England’s pro/celebrity team. The game was a chance for West Ham fans to say goodbye to their stadium and pay homage to their heroes who graced their famous pitch, in particular to Bobby Moore, Trevor Brooking and Geoff Hurst


East Africa Famine Disaster

Celtic 5 v Manchester United 3

Celtic Legend Henrik Larsson turned back the clock against Manchester United as The Legends football property took its first foray into club football. Over 55,000 turned up at Celtic Park to see Keane, Lennon, Hartson, Sutton, Yorke … and a host of stars from TV, film, music and sport ... and flying in from LA, Gerard Butler who said; ‘that was the greatest day of my life’. This match was played in aid of Oxfam’s East Africa Famine Relief Appeal and featured for the first time what is now a regular live music feature at our games. Probably the noisiest and most raucous atmosphere ever seen at one of our Legends’ matches especially when Henrik scored his last ever hat trick for The Hoops


John Hartson Trophy

England 6 v Wales 0

Harry Redknapp, Ian Wright and Idris Elba managed our England Legends in a match raising money and awareness of brain cancer in association with The John Hartson Foundation, after John’s battle and ultimate recovery from brain cancer. This match saw the best of British go head to head and brought another great football rivalry to the growing Legends fanbase. No fairytale ending for John - Robbie Savage and Joe Calzaghe couldn’t land a glove on England’s now experienced Legends. Also, very sadly, this was the last time any of us would see Gary Speed grace a football pitch


Match 4 Malta

Italy 5 v England 1

This was our first overseas match in several years. Our UK Legends captained by a revitalised Paul Gazza Gascogne and featuring Waddle, Barnes, Merson, McAllister and Sharpe came up against a daunting Italian lineup that included a who’s who of Italian stars, including Baresi, Schillachi, Signori, Rossi. Pre-match we filmed several support shows supporting Malta’s tourism, government and stakeholders, Malta’s got Talent, Malta’s next football star and a post match concert. This match was played in the national stadium, and broadcast around the world with Italian Legends running out 5-1 winners. A stunning and chastening loss for the UK team. The England Legends will be ready for the Azzurri the next time these two meet


Sir Bobby Robson Trophy

England 3 v Germany 2

Voted ‘Tearjerker of The Decade’ by The Independent Newspaper, it was a pleasure to produce a match that recognised and celebrated the immense contribution made to English and Spanish football, the players who he coached and an immensely popular man. Bringing back Sir Bobby’s Italia ‘90 WC team against their greatest rivals from that night in Turin, and adding special guest Alan Shearer. The match was played in aid of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation for Cancer at a packed St James Park, Newcastle FC, and from the moment Sir Bobby entered the stadium there was not a dry eye in the house - from attending fans, stewards even policemen on duty, including all of the legends and personalities who turned out to play; representatives from the world of football and even the 4 Tenors as they performed Nessun Dorma, the sound of Italia ‘90. Shearer scored the winner, Sir Bobby died 4 days later. This game remains the most emotionally impactful match we have produced



England 4 v Germany

Paul Gascoigne, Andy Cole, Joe Calzaghe and Lothar Matthäus alongside stars from sport, TV, film and music came together to support and raise money for The Help For Heroes charity. An incredibly poignant match that paid tribute to those that have fallen or been injured in their service to the UK’s armed forces. Featuring current serving members of all three armed forces alongside our legends and stars with the last post played in a torrential storm before kick off and the match ball delivered by chinook helicopter and abseiled onto the centre circle. This match was the catalyst to us creating our Game4 matches and continued the legacy The Legends has of supporting, raising money and bringing a focus to worthwhile causes


England Legends The Rivals 3

England 3 v Ireland 3

In what was probably the most tense and exciting game The Legends football property had produced to date, Peter Reid’s squad (with a hilarious live team talk from guest Barry Fry), faced a resolute Irish group led by Niall Quinn, Jason McAteer and Andy Townsend. This game staged at Fulham’s Craven Cottage broke the previous record for the most capped internationals on one pitch at the same time and once again smashed expected TV viewing figures. Played with similar passion to the previous match with Scotland, this game was played at a frenetic pace and demonstrated that even once retired, the legends players never lose their competitive nature. It went to penalties, England once again holding their nerve. Why can’t it always be like this?


England Legends The Rivals 2

England 2 v Scotland 0

Played at Southampton’s St. Mary’s stadium, Stan Collymore took centre stage as Kevin Keegan and Peter Reid’s England legends proved too strong for Graeme Souness’ Scotland. The south coast got a taste of what the Auld Enemy fixtures are all about as old rivalries were reignited all over the pitch. A passionate encounter that had personal battles between the likes of firebrand Collymore and Braveheart Colin Hendrie, where no quarter was asked or given. Another big TV hit and a world record for the number of capped international players in any game.


England Legends The Rivals 1

England 1 v Germany 5

The Legends moved on apace as ITV commissioned a three-game Legends Series to see England, led by England and Man Utd captain and hall of famer ‘Captain Marvel’ Bryan Robson, take on old foes from Germany, Scotland and Ireland. Game 1 in the series saw a capacity Sheffield United crowd watch Robson, Barnes, Merson, Sharpe, Le Tissier, Wilkins, Collymore, Shilton take on the likes of Meier, Buchwald, Freund. This match, in aid of the Red Cross Chinese Earthquake Appeal, scored big with high viewing figures for the network and kicked off the series in style


Alan Ball Trophy

England 4 v The World 2

The Legends opened the new Stadium MK in style as Sky’s day-long festival of football with two live broadcast matches played host to leading names from the world of football and sport, stage and screen. A European team of players and stars were pitted against England legends and celebrities in a celebration of the life of 1966 World Cup winner Alan Ball, whilst raising funds for the British Heart Foundation


40 Years of Hurt match

England 1 v Germany 4

Boasting a line up of 8 world champions from boxing, tennis, F1 & athletics, 25 ex-international soccer legends and a host of stars from film, music and entertainment, a sold out Madjeski Stadium played host to The Legends’ second outing. This match was the Legends premiering in the UK, set record viewing figures for Ch5 and got the ball rolling for us producing Legends and Game4 tv matches. Raising funds for The Red Cross and The Bobby Moore Cancer Fund, the match became famous worldwide and went viral before the world even knew what that was - for the most unlikely reason – future London Mayor and British PM Boris Johnson’s infamous spear tackle.


Match of the Heart Italia Cantanti

italy 5 v england 5

With a capacity crowd of fervent Florentines and a live Rai TV audience of 8.5m, this match included the most eclectic group of players and stars ever seen at that point. The Stadio Artemi Franchi watched Italy, led by Claudio Ranieri and featuring Maldini, Baresi, Rossi, Di Canio, Ramazotti, Zucchero take on Ian Rush, Paul Gascoigne, Lee Sharpe, Rod Stewart, Jason Orange and Mark Owen from Take That, Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, Tony Hadley and Paul Young with special guest appearances by Pavarotti and Gorbachev. This match was the pre-cursor to us bringing The Legends matches to the UK
