Muhammad Ali's funeral will be held June 10 in his hometown of Louisville, Ky., a spokesman for Ali's family said Saturday afternoon.

The funeral is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the KFC Yum! Center and will be open to the public. There will be a public procession beforehand which will begin at 9 a.m., and its route "includes locations that were historically important to Muhammad," according to a statement.

Eulogies will be given by former President Bill Clinton, Billy Crystal and Bryant Gumbel.
