Tickets for the match are priced at £55-60 for adults and £25-30 for under 16's and, £40-45 concessions.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Özil and Kaka could all feature against Eddie Howe's squad.
AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell told the Daily Echo...
"The clubs share a mutual friend who does work with Real Madrid. Tom (Mitchell) was chatting to him a few weeks ago and we had been looking for the opportunity to try to get a big club to the ground to celebrate our rise to the Championship. The mutual friend said that he could possibly get Real Madrid.
"Tom put it to me, I put it to the chief executive (Neill Blake) and we put it to my business partner (Maxim Demin). We decided that it would be great for the fans and us to pull off something like this.
"We took it further, things developed and we have worked very hard to secure the game. They have been across, met us all, looked at the stadium, pitch and accommodation, and they have been really impressed with the situation."
