The oldest football club in the world, Sheffield FC, have announced they'll be playing Wednesday as part of their high-profile pre-season to celebrate their 150th anniversary.
The newly-promoted UniBond Division One club are currently in talks with Spanish giants Real Madrid over a possible friendly in the near future to celebrate their 150 years as a club.
But should they fail to attract David Beckham's men to South Yorkshire, they still have a number of high profile dates to look forward to as they prepare for the forthcoming campaign.
The club have already agreed a date with Scottish Premier League club Glasgow Rangers, who will be sending a squad down to Sheffield on July 31 with ticket details still to be released.
They'll play their annual clash with the Owls on Wednesday July 25, but it's likely the Owls will send a second string following their friendly clash with Chesterfield the previous evening at Saltergate.
Dave McCarthy's men will open their pre-season campaign against League One side Doncaster Rovers while Premiership Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United will also be on the cards for fans of the club.
Team manager Dave McCarthy said: 'These fixtures will provide good preparation ahead of the club`s first ever season in the Unibond League, while rewarding our supporters with some enjoyable and interesting opposition.
'This will be our 150th campaign and to begin with such high profile matches against Rangers, Blackburn and Doncaster, along with our friends at Wednesday and United, is terrific for a club of our size. Who knows, we might be able to add an even bigger team name to that list in the near future - let`s keep our fingers crossed.'
Ticket details for the Owls' clash at The Bright Finance Stadium are due to be released shortly.
