Tomlinson and Coppinger will lead the two teams of Doncaster Rovers Legends Game, which will kick off from 4pm. 

"This is a wonderful chance for all the people who support the club to come out and show what we are about and have an amazing day that we won't forget whilst also bringing new fans to Doncaster to showcase some of the players," said the midfielder, who joined the club in May 2004.

The ticket for Legends Game went on sale on 20 February, Friday, on the official website of Coppinger and fans of One Direction and Doncaster Rovers did not miss the opportunity to grab it.
