Old Trafford will play host to a testimonial match in honour of Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney - with all profits raised from the game going to charity.
The match will mark Rooney's 12 years at the club and is scheduled to take place on 3 August 2016.
Money generated from the game will be distributed to his chosen charities through the newly-created Wayne Rooney Foundation, a registered charity.
"I would like to thank everyone involved in making this testimonial become a reality
"Most of all I want to thank the fans for all their incredible support for me and the team since I joined the club.
"The match night will obviously be special for me and my family but I hope it will be a night of celebration for all involved and that we can also deliver one or two surprises."
"From his sensational debut hat-trick to the latest of his 236 goals, he has been a central figure in what has been one of the most successful periods in the club's history, winning everything from the Club World Cup, the Champions League and League Cup, to his five Premier League titles.
"Wayne has selected good causes very close to his heart and the club is delighted to play its part, in providing Old Trafford as a fitting stage for such a game."

A Manchester United fan loves his team so much he's commissioned a Lego artist to build him his very own replica of Old Trafford.
The scale model used up 2,500 bricks and took a fortnight to complete.
The replica was built by 'Brickstand' aka Chris Smith, from Altrincham, who plans to build all 92 league grounds eventually.
Chris says building Old Trafford from scratch was one of his most difficult projects.
"I probably wouldn’t do it again as it was so big. In the end it took me a lot longer than they usually do."
“I ended up having to build the inside of the stadium on one base and the outside and the stands on another. I couldn’t move it as it was so heavy - you could not really move it around without some effort."
“But the guy who ordered it was from Manchester and when I took it around and showed it to him he was delighted with it - he has it actually inside his coffee table in the middle of his lounge."
Former Manchester United stars Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs have reportedly told squatters they can stay in the historic building they're hoping to turn into a hotel.
The pair are hoping to turn the Stock Exchange in the city centre into a boutique hotel but have apparently told the Manchester Angels they can help rough sleepers through the winter.
Homeless rights activists took up residence there under squatter’s rights after being told to leave an office block in the city. The leader of the group Wesley Hall, said he spoke to Neville on the phone - and that the group would be allowed to stay for a ‘few months.'
