St Patrick's Athletic host Patrick Vieira's Manchester City Elite Development Squad TONIGHT in Inchicore as the Saints' face the Citizens (kick-off 7.45pm, Richmond Park).
Former World Cup and European Championship winner with France, Patrick Vieira will be present to oversee his Manchester City side as the Saints welcome a young Manchester City side to Inchicore which includes Ireland U19 international goalkeeper Ian Lawlor.
Everyone through the turnstiles on the night will be entered into a raffle to win a signed Manchester City jersey and one lucky person will be going home with a sky blue shirt bearing the signatures of some potential stars of the future.
The last Premier League side to have faced the Saints in Richmond Park were a Chelsea XI in 2009 that featured the likes of Fabio Borini, while a Tottenham Hotspur side with Gareth Bale, Darren Bent and Robbie Keane amongst their ranks were visitors to Inchicore in 2007.
The Saints will be without the services of Jason McGuinness who suffered a cut to his head that required 10 stitches in last Friday's 3-0 win vs Sligo Rovers, while Christy Fagan also sits out the game with a knee injury.
Sean Hoare could make his return from a hamstring injury, while Ian Morris is in line for a first home appearance after joining the club.
Tickets priced €10 for adults and €5 for children/students/OAP.
