F2 football freestylers Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch will feature at the Rio Ferdinand testimonial match.
The duo will open proceedings at Old Trafford on August 9th, when Manchester United face Sevilla to celebrate the centre back’s 11-years of service to the Premier League champions.
The F2 freestylers are regulars on the professional football circuit, appearing in several TV adverts between them alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Additionally, they feature in #5 Magazine – Rio Ferdinand’s online venture – as part of the Players Lounge, which gives current professionals the chance to showcase their skills.
The clash between the Premier League champions and La Liga outfit promises to be a fantastic affair, and will be broadcast live on BT Sport just a week ahead of the new season.
Tickets are still available for the clash, and can be purchased on the official Manchester United website. BUY TICKETS HERE
