The Canadian men's soccer team will play in Toronto for the first time in almost seven years.
Organizers confirmed Wednesday that Canada will host Costa Rica in a friendly at BMO Field on Sept. 12.
Costa Rica is ranked 50th in the world compared to 103rd for Canada, which is 3-7-5 lifetime versus the Ticos.
It will mark Canada's first match in Toronto since a 0-0 draw with Mexico at Varsity Stadium in a World Cup qualifier on Nov. 15, 2000.
Varsity Stadium, which was built in 1898, was demolished in 2002, leaving Toronto without a suitable venue to host sanctioned international matches.
BMO Field is a 20,000-seat facility being built for MLS expansion entry Toronto FC, which debuts April 28, and for use by the national soccer teams.
