MILAN, Italy—Italy will play Scotland in Turin in August 2015 as part of their preparations for the World Cup.

The precise date has not yet been set for the friendly match, but on Thursday the Italian rugby federation said Turin’s Stadio Olimpico will be the venue.

The Olimpico, which is home to Serie A side Torino, has already hosted international rugby, when Italy played Australia last November.

Turin has been named as European Capital of Sport for 2015.

The 2015 World Cup will take place in England from Sep. 18 – Oct. 31.
