Bolton will play at Boundary Park on Tuesday, July 12.
With other opponents agreed, these will also be communicated by Latics at a later date.

Meanwhile, academy graduate Joe Edwards has signed a professional contract at Latics for the 2022/23 campaign.
Edwards, a talented attacking midfielder, has committed his future to the club as he turns pro after a successful time in the youth team.
Alongside training with the senior players regularly this season, the 18-year-old is from the area after playing for Greater Manchester Schoolboys and studying at Royton & Crompton before his scholarship.
Edwards said: “I’m just buzzing and it’s a dream come true really.
"I’ve always wanted to be a professional footballer and I’ve worked really hard to achieve that."
