Tributes to Sunshine Coast footballer James Ackerman will be held at rugby league matches across Queensland this weekend.
The 25-year-old father of two passed away in the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr Ackerman was playing as a forward for the Sunshine Coast Falcons on Saturday when he was injured in a tackle just five minutes into the game against the Norths Devils at Bishop Park in Nundah, in Brisbane's north.
A duty doctor and first aid staff treated him on the field for more than half an hour.
Ackerman was rushed to hospital and match officials called off the game.
Falcons CEO Chris Flannery said that this weekend Sunshine Coast clubs would "take a knee" and form a circle - recreating their actions on the day Mr Ackerman was injured.
"Most of the clubs around the country want to do something, whether it's a minute's silence, black armbands, whether it's taking a knee for James," he said.
"So a lot of the clubs are imitating that photo and they're going to be in a huddle with their arms linked - both teams - this is all over the Sunshine as far as I'm aware - are going to be 'taking a knee for James' - so it's a really obviously moving tribute and gesture."
Others will be holding fundraisers and collecting money for a trust fund set up to benefit Mr Ackerman's family, including his children, Ollie and Milly.
Donated organs help save 18 others so far
Mr Ackerman's family have donated his organs and two people have already received transplants, while another 18 were set to benefit from tissue donations.
"While we are mourning and grieving the loss of our beautiful son James, we have found some comfort in knowing he has helped save a number of lives through organ and tissue donation," Michael and Sonya Ackerman said in a statement.
"While James has gone, his spirit remains and we are very proud that he is helping other people and their families."
Two people have already received organ transplants from Mr Ackerman.
"In the near future up to 18 other people will benefit from James' precious gift of tissue donation," his parents' statement said.
"We would like to add our support of organ and tissue donation and encourage Australians to consider becoming donors."
Mr Ackerman's funeral will be held next week.
