David Beckham and LA Galaxy have signed to play a one-off game against Sydney FC in November.

Football Federation Australia secured the promotional coup, conditional on the participation of the English superstar, News Limited reported.

The match is scheduled for Sydney's Olympic Stadium on November 27 with FFA to spend the profits on the entire A-League.

Acting premier John Watkins said the deal, supported by the state government and Telstra Stadium, was a major coup for Sydney.

"In the world of sports entertainment there is no bigger name than David Beckham," he told News Limited.

LA Galaxy had planned an Asian tour but cancelled all but the Sydney leg.
