Represent Reds in Moscow

If you're heading over to Moscow for next week's Champions League final and are looking for a way to occupy your time, we may have the answer.

Spartak Moscow fans are preparing to face a side comprised of Manchester United fans in Moscow on Wednesday, and the Stretford End Flags supporters' group are looking for players to represent the Reds.

The match is part of the 'Football Unites' project, and will take place on a full-size artificial pitch. Former United winger Andrei Kanchelskis will be among the special guests watching the game, who will present prizes to the best players.

Buses will meet those who take part at Moscow airport, take them to the friendly match and then onto the Luzhniki Stadium for United against Chelsea.

The 11-a-side, unlimited substitutions match will be overseen by a professional referee and is open to players over or around 30 years of age, who has a valid match ticket for Wednesday's final.

Everyone who takes part will be provided with food and drink, and will also receive souvenirs. Those interested should contact stretfordendflags@hotmail.com detailing your name, position played, how you are travelling to Moscow and your arrival time.
