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.
