AS Roma, Zaglebie Lubin to play at Wrigley Field

Italy’s AS Roma and Poland’s Zaglebie Lubin (zahg leh BEE’ ay

LOO bin) will play a friendly in July at Wrigley Field in the

baseball park’s first football match since 1984.

The July 22 game will serve as the opening match of AS Roma’s

United States Tour, with additional stops scheduled for Boston and

New York 28 years ago.

Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs’ home ballpark, last hosted a

football match when the then Chicago Sting played the Vancouver

Whitecaps.

AS Roma has won three Serie A titles, nine Coppa Italia titles

and two Supercoppa Italiana titles.

Zaglebie Lubin competes in Poland’s top division, the

Ekstraklasa.
