Fans at the Nou Camp are also encouraged to arrive early, with a video tribute and a minute's silence among the activities planned.

With a capacity of almost 100,000, and huge love and respect for their former coach, it promises to be a remarkable occasion.

Vilanova, 45, lost his battle with throat cancer on April 25. The illness had forced him to stand down from the manager's job in the summer of 2013.
