TORONTO -- Toronto FC will play a friendly match against its affiliate club, the Wilmington Hammerheads, next month.

The Toronto club announced Tuesday that it will play its first ever match against the United Soccer League Pro team Wed., June 18 at Legion Stadium in Wilmington, N.C.

"We are very excited to participate in a friendly match with Wilmington during the FIFA World Cup break," said Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko. "Wilmington has done a great job thus far in providing our players on loan with everything they need to succeed and grow in a professional environment.

"This is another opportunity to strengthen our relationship with our affiliate club and bring Toronto FC into their market, all while giving our players match minutes during the break."

Toronto FC currently has three players on loan at Wilmington: goalkeeper Quillan Roberts, midfielder Manny Aparicio and forward Jordan Hamilton.

The Hammerheads currently sit 10th in USL Pro table with eight points and a record of 2-1-2. The match will not effect league points for either team.

"This friendly match is another great benefit of our strong partnership with Toronto," said Wilmington general manager Jason Arnold. "We are excited to host the team and showcase their club to our fans and the City of Wilmington."
