everton crest Everton Coming To Canada This Summer

Everton are planning on playing a friendly in Edmonton, Canada this July, according to a report in The Edmonton Journal.

According to the newspaper, a contract has been signed for Everton to play against a team to be determined on July 25, 2009 at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta.

Everton’s opponent has not yet been named, but Mike Traficante, the past present of the Alberta Soccer Association and current technical director for the Canadian Soccer Association, said on Monday that organizers are trying to secure a top team from Argentina.

A press conference to announce the July 25 Everton game in Edmonton is expected in the next few days.

Everton announced earlier this week that they’ll be playing a friendly in Ghana in early July. Plus, Everton has already been booked to play against the Major League Soccer all-star team in Salt Lake City on July 29, 2009.
