David Beckham is to be honoured with the Legend of Football award at the 20th Anniversary HMV Football Extravaganza.

The event, which raises funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, will take place on September 1 at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

David Beckham said: “I’m incredibly honoured to be receiving this award. When you look at the list of the previous recipients, I feel very fortunate to be considered alongside them.

“More importantly the night is about recognising the fantastic work that Nordoff Robbins does and raising funds for their vital work.”

Previous recipients of the Legend of Football Award include Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Charlton and Alan Shearer.

Brian McLaughlin, chairman of the HMV Football Extravaganza and Nordoff Robbins governor said: “We are absolutely thrilled that David Beckham has accepted our prestigious Legend of Football Award.

“David is, without doubt, one of the world’s footballing greats and I am delighted he will be joining us.

“We have had many great nights since this event began and been joined by some exceptional football personalities. With David Beckham on our team it guarantees this tremendous tradition will be upheld on the occasion of our 20th anniversary”.
