Manchester United for Pittodrie

Sir Alex Ferguson
The former Aberdeen manager's side will arrive in July

Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United are heading to Pittodrie, it has been revealed.

The Premiership giants will play Aberdeen - who Sir Alex formerly managed - on Saturday, 12 July.

The game will mark the 25th anniversary of the Dons winning the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1983.

A sell-out crowd is expected for the tie, which will be a highlight of a series of testimonial events to honour the victory.

Sir Alex led Aberdeen to three Scottish championships, four Scottish Cups, one League Cup, the Cup Winners' Cup and the European Super Cup.
