United confirmed on Saturday that Ferguson, 77, will once again take his place in the dugout after making a good recovery from the brain haemorrhage he suffered in May last year.
“I’m really looking forward to what will be a special day at Old Trafford,” Sir Alex said in a statement on Manchester United official website on his return to the sidelines.
“It will be a great catch up with some familiar faces and a great opportunity to support the work of Manchester United Foundation.”

Manchester United’s group managing director and Foundation chairman Richard Arnold, said: “The ’99 Treble is one of the most important and historic moments in Manchester United’s story, with a team made up of some true legends of the game.
”The final against Bayern Munich is a night etched in the memory of all our fans and, for so many of those names to be returning to Old Trafford to celebrate the anniversary of that momentous achievement, is a testament to Manchester United Foundation and the work it does in our community.”
Ferguson continues to regularly watch United matches both home and away and has been reintroduced to the fold at the club’s Carrington training ground since Solskjaer replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December.
Ferguson managed United from 1986 to 2013 where he won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions League trophies.
Tickets for the reunion match, priced at between £19.99 and £50 for adults and £10 for juniors go on sale on February 21.
