Sami Hyypia is set for a return to Anfield when Liverpool complete their preparations for the 2012-13 season with a home friendly against Bayer Leverkusen.
The clash will take place on Sunday, August 12 at 3pm (UK time) - six days before the start of the new Barclays Premier League season.
Liverpool have already confirmed friendly games against Toronto FC (July 21), Roma (July 25) and Tottenham (July 28) on their tour to North America presented by Standard Chartered.
Brendan Rodgers will then oversee his first competitive games in charge with Europa League third qualifying round fixtures on August 2 and 9 before Leverkusen travel to Merseyside.
Hyypia spent 10 years at Anfield before departing for Leverkusen, where he started as a player before becoming a coach.
The Finn was appointed manager this summer after taking over as caretaker boss in April.
Liverpool supporters are sure to afford a warm reception to one of the Reds' greatest ever signings, who made 464 appearances after arriving in 1999.
He went on to captain the club, score 35 goals and help re-establish Liverpool as a European force.
Hyypia's medal cache includes the Champions League, the UEFA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups, two FA Cups and two League Cups.
Stay tuned to the website for ticket details. Kick-off is 3pm BST, 4pm CEST and 10am Eastern Time.
