Football star David Beckham is making a return trip to New Zealand, this time to play an exhibition game in Auckland with his Los Angeles Galaxy team.

The game against an Oceania All Stars team is set to be played at Mt Smart Stadium on 6 December.

It is hoped at least three international players will join the team.

Beckham and LA Galaxy played the Wellington Phoenix before more than 32,000 fans at Westpac Stadium in the capital last December.

LA Galaxy won the match 4-1.

Ticket prices for the Auckland event will range from $45 to $180.
