Albion have confirmed Valencia as their opponents for the showpiece Amex friendly before the start of the Premier League season.

The match on Friday August 2 (7pm) against Bruno's former club will serve as a tribute to the retired skipper, who has just taken up a new role as senior player development coach.

A quarter of the net gate receipts from the visit by the La Liga side will be donated to the charities of his choice.

Bruno joined Albion in 2012 from Valencia (below), where he played for three years, before seven seasons with the Seagulls.

The Argus: In 2017 he signed up to ex-Valencia colleague Juan Mata's Common Goal project, pledging one per cent of his salary to charity.

Bruno, who ended his playing career with Manchester City's title-sealing visit in May, said: "It's going to be a really special day at the Amex again.

"To have Valencia here, a massive team, it’s going to be an amazing pre-season game, and very special for me.

"Giving the donations to charities and being involved in the community is really important for the club and myself."

Fans will have the the option of making a further donation towards Bruno's charity fund when buying tickets, priced from £15 to £30 for adults and £5 to £15 for children and senior citizens.

The match will also be a home welcome to new head coach Graham Potter ahead of Albion's opening game at Watford eight days later.
