3:17 pm on 2 September 2008

Football icon David Beckham will return to New Zealand for the second time in a year, as part of the Los Angeles Galaxy side to play an Oceania Invitational side in Auckland, in December.

Beckham and his Galaxy side played against the Phoenix in Wellington in an exhibition match in December last year, attracting a crowd of almost 32,000 - the biggest for a football match in New Zealand.

The game will be played on Saturday, December 6th at Mount Smart Stadium, with tickets which will range from $45 to $180, going on sale later this month.
