The Legend’s Football League – first of its kind in the world – is headed for a spectacular launch with a glittering opening ceremony followed by an enthralling game between the Steel Doctor Red Devils and a World XI at Al Nasr’s iconic Al Maktoum Stadium in Dubai on November 18, 2023.

Multiple World Cup and Ballon d’Or winners will take the pitch alongside club and continental football royalty to captivate the audience.

Billed as the ultimate Red Devils Reunion squad, the Steel Doctor Red Devils boast some of Manchester United’s most revered legends including Ryan Giggs, Dimitar Berbatov, Antonio Valencia, Wes Brown, Mikael Silvestre and Juan Sebastian Veron.

On the other side, the likes of Brazil’s Rivaldo and Roberto Carlos will line-up for the World XI alongside Robert Pires, Clarence Seedorf and Didier Drogba.

Following the opening game in Dubai which is being organized under the aegis of Dubai Sports Council, the six-team League will travel to India in January 2024 for its second game, followed by matches in Qatar, UK and France.

Played over 90 minutes, the matches will feature a unique innovation: Impact Players, who could be a current football superstar, or a non-football celebrity. And to provide the proverbial icing on the cake, every player including those on the bench, will take part in a penalty shoot-out at the end for that edge-of-the-seat finish to the evening’s entertainment.

Tickets for the Dubai match are live now on Q-tickets and Platinumlist, and 20 percent of the revenue from ticket sales will go to Al Jalila Foundation.
