Muhammad Ali will visit Stoke City's Britannia Stadium during his tour of England next month.
Stoke are hosting a lunch for the boxer on 27 August and the club's delighted chief executive, Tony Scholes, said: "He is only visiting three stadiums in the United Kingdom - Old Trafford in Manchester, Wembley Stadium in London and the Britannia Stadium in Stoke-on-Trent. It's going to be a fabulous event at the Britannia Stadium to welcome a true sporting legend."
Ali said: "The UK is very close to my heart. I want to visit again not only to raise awareness and funds for the Muhammad Ali Centre but also to see such a wonderful country and all my friends and fans here."
