Dimitar Berbatov, Andy Cole, Patrice Evra and Dirk Kuyt were among the veterans on show with the two teams captained by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.
The match was good natured - unlike in their real playing days - and raised around £1.3 million ($1.62m) for good causes.
The result? Another bad day in a woeful season for United, as they were beaten 3-1.
