The match will be part of a three-game international window for Canada, coming just a few days before the two Concacaf Nations League group stage matches on June 9 against Curaçao (also at BC Place) and on June 13 against Honduras (away in San Pedro Sula).

It was also announced earlier this week on Tuesday that the Iranian football team will likely play Albania in a friendly ahead of this year's World Cup.
