Sir Alex Ferguson will make a cameo return to the Old Trafford dugout this summer after four years of retirement.
The long-time Manchester United boss will manage a United XI in Michael Carrick's testimonial against an All-Star XI led by another of the midfielder's former managers Harry Redknapp.
Sir Alex's side will see Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs take the field as part of the 2008 Premier League and Champions League-winning squad.
Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Michael Owen will feature in the opposition.
Carrick said he was "honoured" to recruit Sir Alex for the day, adding: "He's the man who probably taught me to win."
Pep Guardiola surprisingly hailed Manchester City's 1-1 draw at home with fourth-placed Liverpool as one of the greatest days of his career.
The low scoreline belied what was a pulsating incident-packed clash at the Etihad - though few would have placed it in the pantheon of greatest matches for the winner of 21 trophies with Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Yet Guardiola said it was his City side's response to the disappointment of the midweek exit from Europe that had given him such joy as a coach.
"This is one of the happiest days of my career as a manager," he said.
"After our defeat in the Champions League, for two days we were so, so sad and in the training sessions we didn't talk too much.
"That is why I am so, so happy. They put absolutely everything that they had on the pitch."

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku ended the week how he had started it - in the headlines - with two goals in the 4-0 win over 10-man Hull.
On Tuesday the Belgium international told the club he would not be signing a new #140,000-a-week contract to make him the highest-paid player in their history as he questioned whether they had the ability to reach the Champions League.
The platform had been laid by a first goal for 20-year-old Dominic Calvert-Lewin, in only his sixth Premier League appearance, and another from Enner Valencia.
