Vincent Kompany finally pays an emotional farewell to Manchester City tonight as he gets his testimonial match.
But Kompany himself will not be playing in the exhibition match, which will see City Legends of years gone by face off a team of Premier League All-Stars.
The Belgian is suffering from a hamstring problem and cannot make it out onto the pitch in a playing capacity.
But the likes of Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards will still all turn out for City.
On the Premier League side, Thierry Henry, Gary Neville and Robin van Persie will all don their boots in what should be an incredible night of footballing entertainment.
Follow all of the action as it happens right here.

Van Persie and Carragher speak:
Van Persie: “A draw is very nice. It was a big honor to play. Before every game in the past I always checked if Kompany was playing because he was such a good player. ”
Carragher, unsurprisingly, blames Neville for the opening goal:“ You’ve got to go with your runners, how many times have you heard Neville say that on Monday Night Football!? ”
Oh what a night
Regardless of the result, tonight was all about one man.
Even though he didn’t manage to take to the field, Vincent Kompany’s name was sang throughout, and he certainly looked to enjoy himself regardless of his unfortunate injury.
And all the while thousands of pounds were raised for his homeless charity Tackle4MCR.
A good time had by all.
