The statue will stand at Cardiff City Stadium
A campaign is kicking off to raise funds for a statue of the captain of Cardiff City's 1927 FA Cup winning team.
Fred Keenor's nephew Graham will receive a donation of £1,000 from the Cardiff City Supporters Trust towards the £85,000 cost of the monument.
Fans have chosen a design by artist Roger Andrews for the statue which will stand at Cardiff City Stadium.
The trust is appealing for donations from Welsh businesses and individuals.
The launch coincides with the 83rd anniversary of the famous 1-0 Wembley win over Arsenal.
Graham Keenor said: "We've said previously that Fred and the rest of the 1927 team have not had the recognition they deserve. The statue will put that right."
Trust board member David Craig, who is project manager for the appeal, said £85,000 was needed to meet the cost of the project.
"Apart from the £1,000 from the Trust, Cardiff council has pledged £15,000 for which we are very grateful," he said.
"We want to see businesses, organisations and individuals in Cardiff, in South Wales, across the UK and the world getting behind this campaign to raise the funds needed."
Fellow Trust member Phillip Nifield described Cardiff-born Fred Keenor as "probably the most inspirational leader in Cardiff City's history".
"It's all about the the history of not just Cardiff City but Cardiff as a city, and also Wales," he said. "You have to remember that Fred Keenor played for Wales more than 30 times.
"Back in those days Wales didn't generally play a lot of games other than with England Scotland and Ireland so he was a player of immense stature and we feel that he and the rest of the 1927 team haven't been recognised."

Fred Keenor was probably best known outside football for his efforts in the First World War, said Mr Nifield.
"He received injuries at the Battle of the Somme and there was concern at the time that he would never play football again," he explained.
Llantwit Major-based artist Mr Andrews also produced the Sir Tasker Watkins statue which stands outside the Millennium Stadium.
The proposed location of the statue is a triangular piece of land between the Grandstand and the Canton Stand.
