Soccer will return to Wrigley Field when Italy's AS Roma and Poland's Zaglebie Lubin square off for an international "Friendly at the Confines" at 2:30 p.m. July 22.

It will be the first soccer game at Wrigley since 1984, when the Chicago Sting beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1. The match kicks off the first leg of AS Roma's United States Tour, with additional stops scheduled for Boston and New York.


Tickets for the Wrigley soccer match will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 24 at www.cubs.com/soccer. Tickets range from $25 to $110 (tax included), with the majority of seats listed at $50 or less.

The playing field will run from Wrigley Field's third base dugout to right field, similar to the football field layout during the 2010 college football game between Northwestern and Illinois.
