LFC Foundation launches 'This Means More Challenge Weekend'
LFC Foundation is calling on Official Liverpool Supporters Clubs (OLSCs) to unite this September to take positive action in their local communities during the coronavirus pandemic.
The ‘This Means More Challenge Weekend’ is a new initiative set up to engage with the club’s global fanbase through its vast network of more than 300 OLSCs to challenge their passionate members to get creative in a fun-filled weekend of activities that will help to make a difference to their most vulnerable communities.
Each OLSC is invited to form groups of up to 15 supporters to collectively take part in a community activity of their choice or from a range of fun activities suggested by LFC Foundation.
All activities will take place from Friday September 4 to Sunday September 6 and have been specially designed to ensure the safety of all involved due to COVID-19.
Fans can then upload photos and footage of their activities to a dedicated portal where a judging panel including LFC CEO Peter Moore, LFC Foundation trustee Linda Pizzuti Henry, LFC Foundation director Matt Parish, and former Reds players will decide the winning entries.
OLSCs can be in with the chance to win exclusive LFC prizes, memorable experiences and more in the four main categories: overall winner, most family-friendly, most community-focused, and most creative and innovative.
The winning team will also enjoy a very special live video call with Jürgen Klopp and have their branch flag and crest on display at Anfield during next season.
All teams will receive a digital support pack, certificate of participation and an invitation to the virtual celebration and awards ceremony, taking place in the week commencing October 5.
Registration for this event is now open, with all certified OLSCs from across the globe invited to get involved.
Parish said: “We are really excited to launch this new initiative, which will be sure to make a huge impact to communities not only locally, but on a global scale.
“For communities far and wide, the past few months have proven very difficult as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. It is hoped that with this initiative, we can unite with our global fanbase to come together, have fun and help support those affected communities.”
Registration for the event closes on Friday August 21, with a further deadline for the uploading of content by Sunday September 20.
As part of the initiative, fans are also given the opportunity make a donation to support their local foodbank provision.
