Liverpool are to play a special Legends match at Dublin's Aviva Stadium in aid of Sean Cox, the fan seriously injured in an attack by Roma fans last season.
Former Reds players will line up against an Ireland XI legends team on April 12 with proceeds raised donated to the Sean Cox Rehabilitation Trust.
'Sean has been supporting Liverpool all of his life and to have this match in Dublin in his name will be a special day,' said Cox's wife Martina Cox.
'It's going to be a very long and slow process for Sean's recovery and I'd like to thank the overwhelming support that Liverpool fans have shown.
'I'd also like to thank the club, players and those former players who will be playing in the match for their continued support.
'We are also working with LFC on a number of other initiatives that will help to support Sean's care in the years ahead.'
A bucket collection before the Premier League fixture at home to Cardiff earlier this season, match-funded by the LFC Foundation, raised £59,000.
The club and first-team players are also supporting the appeal privately.
'We're all behind Sean and his family.
'We hope this unique Legends game in Ireland's capital will be a huge success and help generate vital funds to support Sean's rehabilitation,' said Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore.
