Legends of Football
PPL is supporting the Legends of Football Awards, taking place on Monday 7 October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.
Legends of Football has raised £8 million for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins. This event has enjoyed 20 years celebrating the achievements and careers of some of the greatest footballers and managers in the beautiful game.
Since 1996, legends such as John Charles, Sir Stanley Matthews, Brian Clough, Sir Bobby Robson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, Alan Shearer and Eric Cantona, to name a few, have received this prestigious award. In recent years the dinner has also paid tribute to Jose Mourinho, Ryan Giggs as well as the man widely regarded as the greatest player of all time – Pele. To mark our 20th anniversary, global footballing icon David Beckham was our recipient. In 2016, we celebrated 25 seasons of the Premier League, honouring a special group of players who have scored 100 Premier League goal. In 2017 we honoured the achievements of Liverpool and England hero Steven Gerrard and last year, current Derby manager and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
