LONDON, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) — Manchester United and FC Barcelona will commemorate the recent terror attacks in both cities during the Legends Match at Old Trafford on Saturday, the English Premier League side said on Wednesday.

Legends of each team will unite for the charity fixture, and will wear black armbands as a mark of respect for the victims of the attacks in Manchester in May, and in Barcelona and Cambrils earlier this month.

The players will also have the names of their respective cities on the backs of their shirts, as the FC Barcelona first-team did during the first match of their season against Betis on 20th August.

Ahead of kick-off, a minute’s silence will be held in the stadium as the teams line up, with a message of support being displayed on the digital boards surrounding the pitch.

The Manchester United squad for the match will include Edwin van der Sar, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Park Ji-sung and Wes Brown, whilst the Barca side includes Edgar Davids, Patrick Kluivert, Gaizka Mendieta and Eric Abidal.
