It comes as Prime Minister David Cameron has joined well-wishers in congratulating the Iron on its 100 years as a professional football club.
The centenary celebrations at Glanford Park will centre on the home game against Carlisle United on December 22 when Lord Brian Mawhinney, chairman of the Football League, will be in the crowd.
In his message from No 10 Mr Cameron says: "Congratulations to Scunthorpe United on a great achievement for the club and its fans. I hope you all enjoy your centenary celebrations and wish you all the best for the next 100 years."
Scunthorpe United general manager David Beeby said the celebrations would also include a search for the club's oldest and youngest fans.
He added: "For the game we intend giving every child in North Lincolnshire the opportunity to come to the game by giving them a voucher for a free ticket."
At half time Jackie Marriott, who at 84 is believed to the oldest surviving Iron legend, will lead a parade of past players and Lord Mawhinney will present the club with a special award.
For the centenary wall fans will be able to choose from either a single brick, with two lines of black lettering or a double brick, with four lines of gold lettering, engraved with your name and personal message.
Brick engravings are 15 characters per line. Standard bricks are priced at £39.95, with double bricks £75. Order forms are available online.
The club has also produced a commemorative guide marking the 100th anniversary. It costs £5 and is available from the club shop.
