Hibernian will face Blackburn Rovers this summer in Paul Hanlon’s Testimonial match.
The game will take place on Sunday 8 July, with a 3pm kick-off. Ticket information will be announced in due course.
Blackburn are coached by Tony Mowbray, who started his managerial career with a successful spell at Hibs between 2004 and 2006. The Lancashire side won promotion from League One this season after finishing runners up to Wigan Athletic.
Hanlon, 28, made his debut under Mixu Paatelainen in January 2008 in a 3-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle and has gone on to make 335 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals.
A regular team captain and Scottish Cup winner, Paul has lived the dream of all Hibernian supporters, and a series of events will now celebrate his contribution to the club.
