Norman Hunter will finally be presented with a World Cup winners medal at Elland Road on Saturday.
Hunter was a non playing squad member in 1966, and back then only the starting eleven received medals.
This was changed in 1974 when everyone in the squad`s party received medals.
FIFA finally decided to recognise all the non playing members and staff going all the way back to the first World Cup in 1930.
Hunter actually received his medal earlier this year but said at the time that it would mean more to him if it was presented in front of the Elland Road fans.
Leeds United have decided to make his wish come true and will present him with the medal before Saturday`s opening game of the season against Exeter City.
Hunter will be presented with his medal by World Cup winning defender from 1966 and Leeds all time record apppearance maker Jack Charlton.
Also on the day to make it a family affair for Hunter his grandchildren will lead out the team when they are mascots for the afternoon.
