Treble heroes to play at OT

Six Treble-winning heroes will return to the Old Trafford turf on Saturday 1 May 2010, to play in a charity match for Sport Relief and MU Foundation.

Andrew Cole, Denis Irwin, Ronny Johnsen, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Jaap Stam and Dwight Yorke will form the nucleus of the Manchester United XI, coached by fellow Reds legend and ex-Reading boss Steve Coppell. The opposition will be provided by The Rivals, another pro/celebrity XI guided by former Oldham, Everton and Man City manager Joe Royle.

Kicking off at 15:30, the match will form the centrepiece of United Relief Live - a fun day out for the family that will also feature live music from The Saturdays, The Hoosiers and Tinchy Stryder.

Solskjaer said: “It’s amazing to think that great night at the Nou Camp was over 10 years ago. United Relief Live is a great chance for a generation of fans too young to remember 1999 to come to Old Trafford and see us play.

"Also, the quality of the acts performing and the fact it’s a Bank Holiday weekend should make it a fantastic family occasion.”

Tickets, priced from £15 for adults and £5 for under 16s, are available now online at www.manutd.com/unitedrelief or over the phone on 0161 868 8000. Executive facilities can also be booked on the same number.
