Last Updated: 26/02/18 5:23pm
Wales are to launch their summer tour by facing South Africa at the RFK Stadium in Washington on June 2.
It is the first contest between top-tier national teams to be held in the American capital and will serve as the prelude to their two-Test visit to Argentina.
"We are really pleased to add a third fixture to our summer tour schedule and we hope it will be another great match between ourselves and the Springboks," Wales head coach Warren Gatland said.
"This summer is a vital period for us as we continue the countdown to the 2019 World Cup and another fixture helps us along the way in our preparation and enables us to test ourselves further.
"It will be a great way to start the summer tour before we head further south to Argentina later in the month."
Wales are scheduled to face the Pumas in San Juan on June 9 and in Santa Fe one week later, while South Africa will return home for their three-Test series against England.
