Soccer returning to Wrigley Field this summer

Wrigley Field will be hosting an international "Friendly at the Confines" soccer match between Italy's AS Roma and Poland's Zaglebie Lubin at 2:30 p.m. on July 22.

AS Roma will kick off the first leg of their U.S. Tour at Wrigley, with additional stops scheduled for Boston and New York.

The last soccer match at Wrigley Field was back in 1984 when the Chicago Sting beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 24 at 10:00 a.m. here, with prices ranging from 25 to 110 (tax excluded).

The playing field at Wrigley will run from the third base dugout to right field, which is similar to the football field layout during the 2010 Allstate Wrigleyville Classic game between Northwestern and Illinois.

Were very pleased AS Roma selected Wrigley Field to host their U.S. tour debut. Friendly at the Confines will bring soccer enthusiasts and two passionate, diverse fan bases together to cheer on these proud international franchises at an iconic American venue, said Chicago Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney.

Five time major champion, Phil Mickelson, was in Chicago on Monday to promote the KPMG Women's PGA championship.

Mickelson took a 45-minute CTA train ride from Millennium Station to Olympia Fields CC, demonstrating how hassle free it is to get to the event.

While on the train, CSN's Pat Boyle interviewed Mickelson. They discussed Phil skipping the US Open, Tiger's dash cam video and how difficult the decision was for Mickelson to part with his longtime caddy, Jim "Bones" Mackay.

Lefty also talked about the revolving door of first time winners at the last 7 majors and what is left on his golf "to do" list.
