FC Barcelona announced that Brazilian megastar Ronaldinho will play once more at Camp Nou in a Barcelona shirt, this time for charity.

The former best player in the world will join the likes of Edgar Davids, Juliano Belletti, Ludovic Giuly, and Julio Salinas as part of the FC Barcelona Legends team that will face off against the Manchester United Legends team that will include the likes of Karel Poborsky, Dimitar Berbatov, Ji Sung Park, and Dwight Yorke.

The Camp Nou match will take place on June 30th at 7:00 pm local time, and it will mark Dinho’s first game back at Camp Nou in a Barcelona shirt since leaving in 2008.

There will be another match between these two teams at Old Trafford on September 2nd at 3:00pm local time.

All proceeds will go to charity, with money from the Camp Nou game going to the Pediatric Cancer Center Barcelona project.

This is a project FC Barcelona has been supporting for a while now, and it is intended to provide treatment for children with cancer. Tickets are already on sale and cost between 10 and 19 euros.

Ronaldinho already took part in an FC Barcelona Legends match in which he provided 3 assists as they defeated Real Madrid Legends 3-2 in Beirut, Lebanon.
