Organiser Chris Bloede, who works as a Community Heath Officer at the Tigers Trust, is hoping to double last year's attendance for the clash.
He said: "We've raised £18,000 over the last three years and with this year's game we're hoping to take it to the magic £20,000 figure.
"We're then looking to take the total to £25,000 in two years' time.
"This is the third year we've done a game for the cause and the second at North Ferriby.
"Last year we got around 150 fans and we'd be looking to double that this time, all being well."
The games's beneficiaries will be the Teenage Cancer Trust, the chosen charity of Matt Woollias in whose name the Charity Shield is being played.
Bloede explained: "We do the match each year for Matt, who was a friend of mine when we were younger and a keen footballer and that's how I got involved in the Teenage Cancer Trust.
"He was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and subsequently lost his leg below the right knee."
Last year's event at North Ferriby raised £800 and the Villagers have once again offered the use of their footballing facilities free of charge.
North Ferriby chairman Les Hare said: "We're pleased to host the event for a second time having done the same for the charity last season. For such a worthy cause we're delighted to be able to help."
