Special night for supporters

31 July 2014

Thursday promises to be a special night at Bramall Lane as United prepare to welcome Turkish champions Fenerbahçe to the steel city.


Supporters will have the opportunity to get autographs of all their favourite Blades, in addition to rubbing shoulders with several players who recently competed in the World Cup in Brazil.


After the game there will be a sterile area outside the Players' Entrance (Cherry Street) where both sets of players will be made available to sign autographs.


Let's not forget that Fenerbahçe have several high profile world renowned stars, in addition to several experienced Turkish internationals, goalkeeper Volkan Demirel and former Newcastle midfielder Emre Belozoglu, to name just two.


Diego Ribas (Brazil), Emmanuel Emenike (Nigeria), Pierre Webo (Cameroon), Moussa Sow (Senegal), along with Bruno Alves and Raul Meireles (both Portugal) are all expected to play some part in Thursday's historic friendly clash, kick-off 7.30pm.


The game is designed to celebrate 125 years of the Blades and a contribution from the gate receipts will be donated to the Turkish Mining Disaster Fund.


* Tickets for tonight's game are still available (£7 adults and £3 concessions) and can be purchased from the Box Office right up until the 7.30pm kick-off.
