Soccer is returning to Wrigley Field, as Italy's AS Roma and Poland's Zaglebie Lubin will square off for an international "Friendly at the Confines" July 22 at 2:30 p.m. CDT. Wrigley Field plays host to its first soccer game since 1984, when the Chicago Sting beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1. The match at Wrigley Field kicks off the first leg of AS Roma's United States Tour, with additional stops scheduled for Boston and New York.
Tickets for the first-ever matchup between these two European soccer clubs go on sale Thursday, May 24, at 10 a.m. CDT at www.cubs.com/soccer. Tickets range from $25 to $110 (tax included), with the majority of seats listed at $50 or less.
Each club will feature players from their country's national team. AS Roma's squad features team captain and forward Francesco Totti, forward Bojan Krkic Pérez and midfielder Daniele De Rossi , while Zaglebie Lubin's roster includes forwards Szymon Pawlowski and Arkadiusz Wozniak, midfielder Maciej Malkowski and defender Marcin Kowalczyk.
The playing field will run from Wrigley Field's third base dugout to right field, similar to the football field layout during the 2010 Allstate Wrigleyville Classic college football game between Northwestern University and the University of Illinois.
AS Roma of Italy's legendary Serie A division and Zaglebie Lubin of Poland's Ekstraklasa both have recently come under new ownership. AS Roma, one of European soccer's most storied and prestigious franchises, was purchased by a consortium led by Boston-based Raptor Group's James Pallotta last year, while Zaglebie Lubin was purchased by KGHM, Poland's largest company.
