If it’s not entirely clear (and it may not be if you’re trying to gauge public health based on whether or not spectators are back in stadiums), we’re still in the middle of a pandemic. Liverpool’s men’s team have signed and donated shirts worn during their 4-0 victory against Southampton in February 2019 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Coronavirus Appeal, who are working to raise funds for people living in refugee and displacements camps around the world.

“We would like to extend our thanks to Liverpool FC and their first-team players for their generous donation towards our vital Coronavirus Appeal,” Saleh Saeed from DEC said. “Within refugee camps and makeshift shelters across the world, many people are living in crowded conditions with little food, clean water and medical attention. The money raised from the LFC shirt auction will help provide people who are at extreme risk from coronavirus to access the basic amenities and healthcare that they need in order to protect themselves.”
