Free Union soccer and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia?" That’s a heckuva combo and it will be coming to the area soon.

Always Sunny creator and local native Rob McElhenney announced this morning on The Preston and Steve Show on WMMR that Wrexham AFC, a Welsh pro soccer team McElhenney co-owns with movie star Ryan Reynolds, will play a friendly against the Union on Thursday, July 29, at Subaru Park, home of the Union.

The game will be promoted in conjunction with CORA Services and Philabundance, two organizations that provide services for the underserved in the Philadelphia area. Admission is free to the game, but all fans are asked to bring food donations for Philabundance.

Details on ticket distribution have not yet been released, but McElhenney said this morning that he will be at the game and that other Always Sunny cast members, as well as Reynolds, may also join him.

Wrexham AFC touts itself as the third-oldest professional soccer team in the world and plays in the National League, the fifth level of England’s soccer pyramid.

McElhenney and Reynolds officially took over ownership of Wrexham in February.
