A Manchester United Legends team will take on an Australian XI in a star-studded clash at nib Stadium on March 25.

The match, which will raise money for DT38 Foundation and Manchester United Foundation, will feature a host of stars, expected to include the likes of Paul Scholes, Dwight Yorke, Denis Irwin and Teddy Sheringham.

The DT38 Foundation was set up by Tracy Tombides to honour the passing of her son, young Australian player Dylan Tombides, who lost his battle with testicular cancer in 2014.

The Perth-born and raised player had represented Australia and English Premier League team West Ham United before his tragic passing at the age of 20 in 2014.

Dylan’s father Jim Tombides was delighted with the opportunity for the DT38 Foundation to be associated with the event.

“It’s an honour for our family to have Dylan’s foundation to be selected as one of the nominated charities that will benefit from such a momentous occasion,” he said.

The Manchester United Legends, who will be making their first visit to WA, will be managed by former United and England captain Bryan Robson. The Professional Footballers Australia Legends team will be coached by former Socceroos boss Frank Farina.
