Manchester United will play in non-sponsored shirts, numbered one to 11, in their match on 10 February in honour of the Munich air crash victims.

The Premier League game against rivals Manchester City is four days after the 50th anniversary of the tragedy.

The plane, carrying Matt Busby's legendary 'Babes', crashed on the way back from a European Cup tie at Red Star Belgrade, killing 23 people.

England will also pay tribute when they play on the day of the anniversary.

They face Switzerland on 6 February at Wembley.

United are also setting up a free, permanent exhibition in the South Stand tunnel about the Munich crash and Busby's 'Babes'.

A memorial service will take place on 6 February at 1504 GMT - the exact time of the crash.

Among those to die in the crash were Duncan Edwards - regarded by many as the finest English player of all time - and United skipper Roger Byrne.
