The Rangers Charity Foundation will share the proceeds from the game with the Rangers Youth Development Company.
Rangers Charity Foundation Director, Connal Cochrane said: “We are delighted to be a beneficiary of the Club’s decision to share the proceeds of the Legends Return match between ourselves and the Rangers Youth Development Company.
“The donation will help us continue to be a force for good on behalf of the Rangers Family supporting a range of charities and life changing programmes in the community.
“The Rangers fans support for the Foundation is incredible. This season alone, 311 True Blue Heroes have raised a combined total of over £90,000 for us and we hope that Ibrox will be packed for this special game.”
Former Rangers Manager Walter Smith, commented: “It will be great to be in the Ibrox dugout again for a legends match I’m sure every Rangers fan will be looking forward to.
“Getting the chance to run out on the pitch again is obviously a big thing for the former players, but even for myself, just walking in the dressing room and down the tunnel brings back so many fond memories from both of my spells here as manager.
“In terms of the 90 minutes I expect them to be entertaining and competitive with both sides desperate to win.
“As soon as a player pulls on the Rangers jersey and hears the roar from the crowd they will want to go out and put in a good performance, although how fit they are will undoubtedly determine how much game time I can give them!
“But the most important thing is that supporters get an opportunity to see so many great former players in action and that is what makes these occasions at Ibrox so special for everyone involved.”
More players will be announced by the Club in the coming weeks, including the manager of the away side as well as a number of special guests from the worlds of sport and entertainment. There will also be other fantastic activities and entertainment on the day making sure the occasion will be fun for all the family.
The Rangers Youth Development Company profits are directed to the Clubs’ Youth Department to provide the support for the youth initiatives being introduced by the Club’s Academy.
