Girl band to kick off charity match
Girl band The Saturdays and Manchester United are to team up for a summer charity fundraiser, it has been announced.
The pop princesses, whose hits include Issues, Up and Work, will kick off a pre-match concert at Old Trafford on May 1 to raise money for Sport Relief and the Manchester United Foundation.
Titled The Big Red Day Out, the music will warm up the crowd before a star-studded football match between a Manchester United XI and "The Rivals", featuring a mixture of Manchester United legends and celebrity fans.
Players will include Gavin and Stacey star James Corden, DJ George Lamb, Paddy McGuinness, Tim Lovejoy, Matt Dawson and Jason Manford.
Lamb said: "It's going to be a great day, United Relief Live is about having fun with family and friends as well as raising money for people who have unimaginably tough lives. Peter Crouch is kindly lending me a pair of boots, so it's game on."
Tickets are priced from £15 for adults, £5 for children and are on sale now at www.sportrelief.com or www.manutd.com or by calling 0161 868 8000.
