Legends from both clubs have been lined up for the Corazon Classic Match 2012, due to take place at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday 3 June. A return match at Old Trafford has also been agreed for next year, on 2 June 2013.
The stellar names in the Reds squad include Roy Keane, Edwin van der Sar, Denis Irwin, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke and Bryan Robson while Real Madrid's glittering recent past will be represented by the likes of Zidane, Figo, Redondo, Hierro, Butragueño, Sanchís, Helguera and Morientes. For some players, it will be a rematch - United and Real Madrid met in the Champions League quarter-finals of 2000 and 2003 with the Spanish giants winning both ties, 3-2 and 6-5 on aggregate.
The proceeds from this star-studded game will support the Real Madrid Foundation's charity work in Africa. Tickets priced at 5, 10 and 15 Euros can be purchased online at www.realmadrid.com/fundacion.
Further details of the 2013 fixture at Old Trafford - in support of the Manchester United Foundation - will be announced in due course.
