Chester FC have announced a pre-season fixture with Bolton Wanderers.
The game will take place at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium on Wednesday, July 20 (7.45pm).
Relegated from the Premier League in 2012, Bolton have endured a difficult period on the pitch amid financial problems with the club's relegation to League One confirmed last month.
Ex-Wanderers forward Dean Holdsworth fronted a takeover of the club in March with previous owner Eddie Davies becoming president.

With interim boss Jimmy Phillips, who took over from the sacked Neil Lennnon, standing aside, the Macron Stadium outfit are in the process of appointing a new manager.
Peter Reid, the former Everton and England midfielder who has managed Manchester City, Sunderland and Leeds United, the favourite. Others thought to be in the frame include Nigel Adkins, Phil Brown, Alan Stubbs and Uwe Rosler.
It will be a new-look Trotters team that starts the 2016-17 season after the club released no fewer than 21 players last week with David Wheater, Neil Danns and Emile Heskey among those heading through the exit door.
Bolton have confirmed their first-team squad will be visiting Chester's National League rivals on Tuesday, July 9 so the side that faces the Blues the following evening could well include a number of trialists, fringe players and academy products.
The fixture is the sixth pre-season game Chester have confirmed to date.
Jon McCarthy's men will visit Cheshire League side Sandbach United on Saturday, July 9, before taking on Neil Young's Altrincham at Moss Lane the following Saturday (July 16).
The Blues then host Bolton before travelling to Evo-Stik League Premier Division outfit Marine on Saturday, July 23, and visiting Nantwich Town on Tuesday, July 26.
League One side Port Vale will visit the Blues on Saturday, July 30, a week before the start of the new National League campaign with McCarthy coming up against the club he made 94 appearances for between 1995 and 1997.
Port Vale finished 12th in League One last season but the Valiants are on the lookout for a new manager following Rob Page's move to Northampton Town.
