It’s aways great being asked to work on a charity football match for lots of reason… most of all the look on the charities face when they see how much support they are getting!
I have been lucky enough to do quite a few of these but this one was great to work on.
The charity Help Harry Help Others, a great charity, if you haven’t heard of it before make sure you check out the link and the inspirational story of Harry who sadly passed but one thing is for sure his legacy lives on.
Toronto will play host to Liverpool FC in Liverpool’s first stop on their North American preseason tour.
The English club come to North America for a chance to test what their squad has to offer heading into the start of their preseason. It is also a great chance to build their brand in North America. Liverpool is already one of the most popular soccer teams in the world, and they hope that this preseason tour will boost their popularity in places like Canada and the United States.
Toronto is a great MLS city. They average around 20,000 fans in attendance every game but have had as many as 50,000 crammed into the Rogers Centre (they normally play at BMO Field). In 2004, when Liverpool last played at the Rogers Centre, there were over 30,000 in attendance.
Toronto is not having the season that they desired; they are currently last in the Eastern Conference and hold only 16 points, which is the worst in the MLS. If Toronto could keep this match close or even pull the upset, it would provide them with a huge boost of confidence heading into the rest of their season.
Liverpool will use this match in order to gain confidence in their new manager, Brendan Rodgers, who is in the process of implementing his style of play. This will be an excellent opportunity for his squad to get some experience in his style against a much weaker opponent.
