“After another successful campaign, we’re delighted to be heading to the West Coast again this summer, and we’re also looking forward to venturing up to Vancouver and spreading the Club’s footprint into Canada,” Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson said in a statement.

The matches will form part of Wrexham’s preparations for their first season in League One — English football’s third tier — having secured a second straight promotion by beating Forest Green 6-0 on April 13.

Wrexham, owned by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, face League Two champions Stockport County on Saturday in the final game of their season.
