TORONTO - Canada will host Scotland in a rugby test match at BMO Field on June 14, 2014.

Rugby Canada made the announcement Monday, one day after the Canadian national team drew 22,566 to the lakefront stadium during a 40-15 loss to the Maori All Blacks.

The governing body of Canadian rugby said that was a record crowd for both North American rugby and BMO Field.

Scotland is currently ranked ninth in the world, compared to No. 14 for Canada.

The Canadian men will be facing European competition at the 2015 World Cup, having been drawn in a pool with France, Ireland, Italy and Europe 2.

Canada leaves Monday for a European tour for test matches against No. 16 Georgia in Tbilisi on Saturday, No. 17 Romania in Bucharest on Nov. 16 and No. 22 Portugal in Lisbon on Nov. 23.
