Dublin and Meath are facing a challenging match next month at a fund-raiser for Liverpool supporter Sean Cox who is seriously injured.

The All Ireland champions go to Navan to face their fierce rivals in Pairc Tailteann with the game to be played on 16 December.

Cox is still hospitalized with severe head injuries following the attack.

He returned to Ireland recently after several months receiving treatment in the UK.

The match between Leinster's two most successful counties is provisionally scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on December 16, although details have not been finalized.

It is understood that the organizers want to organize a showdown between the women's teams of Dublin and Meath as a curtain raiser at 11:30 a.m. of the day.

The event is being organized by Mr. Cox's fundraising team in conjunction with the Dublin and Meath County Committee.

A GoFundMe page for Mr Cox has already raised an impressive € 216,000 since it was launched earlier this month.

Speaking last month, Cox's wife, Martina, described her husband's injuries as "catastrophic" and "life changing for everyone."

Cox also told the Late Late Show:

"He has a limited amount of words, very small amount, he can not sit. He can not walk, so it's still very awful, but he's progressing and it's small steps, so we take each step as positive because that's what we do when we're in this situation. "
