BT Sport will air Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand's testimonial live via their television channels as well as online streams.

The 34-year-old, who is a BT Sport ambassador, will lead a United side against Sevilla at Old Trafford on August 9, just a few days before the Red Devils mark the start of their campaign with a FA Community Shield clash against Wigan Athletic.

As well as broadcasting live, BT Sport have reached an agreement with Streamworks International to air the match to 170 countries via Riotestimonial.com.

"Manchester United is a unique club with fans in every corner of the globe so I am delighted that my testimonial is going to be so widely available to all of the club's supporters in so many countries," said Ferdinand.

"It is going to be a fantastic and fun evening and there will be famous sporting faces and celebrities popping up all over the place, so it should be an incredible night."

UK viewers will be able to watch the live stream for free.
