Sunderland have announced they will play Italian giants Juventus in a pre-season friendly to mark the Stadium of Light's 10th anniversary.
Del Piero could be playing at the Stadium of Light in August
"We are delighted with the news and I am sure it will excite our supporters," Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn told the club's website.
"I'm sure most fans can't wait to see the likes of Del Piero, Buffon, Trezeguet and Nedved at our stadium."
The game will take place on Saturday 4 August. Kick-off is at 1500 BST.
The Italian side were demoted from Serie A in 2006 after being found guilty of match-fixing and started the season on minus nine points, but they still managed to gain promotion back to the top flight.
Juve remain the most successful team in Italian football with 27 league titles and nine Italian Cup trophies to their name.
