Steve Harper

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Tickets are now on sale exclusively online for the star-studded charity fixture which will celebrate former United goalkeeper Steve Harper's 20-year spell on Tyneside.

A Newcastle United XI, selected by the popular shot-stopper, will take on AC Milan Glorie - a legends team from Italian Serie A giants AC Milan - at the home of the Magpies at 7pm on Wednesday, 11th September, with all proceeds being split between three charities close to Harper's heart.

The Great North Children's Hospital, Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Newcastle United Foundation will all benefit from the one-off Steve Harper 20 Years Charity Match, boosting their respective projects throughout the North-East.

Harper will call upon Magpies legends and ex-teammates including Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Rob Lee and Faustino Asprilla in his United ranks, while the AC Milan Glorie squad will feature a host of revered Rossoneri icons including Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta and Andriy Shevchenko.

Tickets for the game are priced at just £10 for adults and £5 for children/concessions, and are currently only available online. To secure your seat, click here or use the button below.
