Having provided the opposition for Consett's final match at their old Belle Vue ground in May, Newcastle United will send a team to open the Steelmen's new stadium later this month.
The Northern League Division One side are moving into a multi-million-pound purpose-built venue at Crookhall, on the outskirts of the County Durham town.
As well as the first-team, the new site will house 39 junior teams, two ladies teams and a Reserve team on a 3G artificial field and eight floodlit six-a-side pitches.
The friendly will take place on Friday, November 22nd with a 7.45pm kick-off.
This time around, Peter Beardsley is expected to pull on his boots after performing the official opening.
Admission will be pay on the gate, with prices £6 for adults, £3 concessions and £1 for children.
