Toronto FC announced Tuesday the English Premier League side Bolton Wanderers will be coming to BMO Field for a July 21 friendly.

The game is included in the season-ticket holders’ packages.

“Anytime you can bring a Premiership side over to North America it is exciting news,” said TFC senior director of business operations Paul Beirne in a release. “We look forward to seeing Bolton here this summer, as we continue our commitment of providing our fans top class opposition. It is a treat for us to host founder members of the English Football League.”

Bolton’s tour could be a return to North America for midfielder Stuart Holden, who left the Houston Dynamo for the EPL in January. Holden is expected to be in the final roster of the U.S. squad that goes to South Africa for the World Cup.
