Wrexham AFC, which is owned by actors Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, will play a preseason friendly against the Union in July.
The club, which finished eighth in the 23-team National League, has been outside the English Football League (EFL) since relegation to the fifth tier in 2008.
McElhenney and Reynolds, however, promised to turn the club into a “global force,” which included a £2 million cash injection upon completion of their takeover in November.
Wrexham will meet the Union as the showpiece fixture of a five-day training camp on July 29.
Besides the training camp and match, McElhenney also will host a community event with the Union that will involve several charities from the city.
A statement from Wrexham added that it is likely both actors will be at the game together to watch the team for the first time.
