Tickets for a celebrity filled Sheffield United charity game are selling fast.

A Sheffield United legends team will compete against a Fulham All Stars side when they meet at Bramall Lane on May 22.

Hollywood actor Sean Bean will manage the legends team which consists of players from the Blades’ Premier League promotion-winning squad of the 2005/06 season.

On the opposing side, former Fulham footballer Jimmy Bullard will play alongside comedian Jack Whitehall for the All Stars.

Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, said: “It’s too big an opportunity to turn down so we’re putting it on. Tickets are going well. It’s going to be a fantastic event”

“I know that Sean will be excited to be anywhere around the club because he is a proper true Blade.”

Tony Currie will be assisting Bean whilst World Cup Final referee Howard Webb is set to take charge of the game.

Sheffield United currently sit tenth in the Sky Bet League One table and play their final game of the season at home to Scunthorpe on May 8.

“It’s not been a fantastic season for Sheffield United but hopefully we can end it with a nice fun day out on the pitch” said Dave.

The match is being held in aid of the Steelphalt Blades Academy, the Blades’ Former Players Association and Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids charity as well as the Fulham Foundation charity.

Tickets are priced at £7 for adults and £3 for concessions.

There are also a limited number of Players’ Lounge VIP tickets where fans can meet some of the players and celebrities after the game.
