Park will bid his final farewell on the field to his fans. Lee Young-pyo will commentate during the first half before taking the field to finish the match.  The opposing K-League All-Star Team features top players from this year's World Cup. Goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu of the Ulsan Hyundai Tigers, who showed impressive performance during the match against Belgium in the World Cup, is determined not to lose any points. Striker Kim Shin-wook of Ulsan Hyundai will also be included.

The event is expected to be packed, with 30,000 tickets already sold. Rain is in the forecast, but organizers aren't worried since most seating is covered.
