Almost a year after the “Greek Legends 2004” lost 4-2 on penalties to “Inter Forever” after the match ended in a 1-1 draw in Crete, the heroes from Greece’s most celebrated sporting success are in action again for a good cause.
All proceeds from ticket sales for the match, which will be held at the Pampeloponnisiako Stadium, will go to two charities - the Association of Volunteer Doctors for Cancer Patients, and The Child’s Smile in Patras.
Spain are expected to bring a strong side as they look to gain some “revenge” for Greece’s historic win in Zaragoza 15 years ago during the euro 2004 qualifiers.
“The team that brought glory to Greece, the group of champions who lifted a whole nation up to the heavens, remains an active force, keeping our philanthropic efforts going,” said the team in a media statement.
The 2004 Legends added: “With our aim always to highlight the true values of sports, we want to keep offering to communities and various causes as a way of giving back the love we receive.”
