If you build it, they will come — and since it’s already built, they’re going to play.

The Cincinnati Reds will play the Chicago Cubs in the 2022 Field of Dreams game, the team confirmed Friday.

The teams will meet Aug. 11, 2022.

The field where they'll play was built around a cornfield baseball diamond in Dyersville, Iowa, where the 1989 Kevin Costner movie "Field of Dreams" was shot. The real-life Field of Dreams seats 8,000 people.

The Chicago White Sox played the New York Yankees at the field on Aug. 12, winning the game 9-8. That game was originally scheduled for 2020, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
