Ivan Gazidis, CEO of AC Milan, said: "This crisis has presented unprecedented challenges for all of us, but the contribution that these key workers have made is humbling, inspiring and will never be forgotten.

"The participation of such an amazing array of talent in this event will provide a fitting tribute to them and I hope will help to spread a message of hope and optimism during this difficult period."

Viewers will be able to donate via the "From Milan with Love" fundraising site and AC Milan’s Facebook page.

Money raised will benefit global humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief and Milan’s philanthropic foundation.

Milan’s last Serie A game was on March 8 before the league was suspended.
