Picnic protest against stadium.
Up to 80 people are expected on the field at Rock Road, Rhosymedre, near Wrexham, on Monday afternoon.
They are protesting at plans to build a new stadium for Newi Cefn Druids on the land there.
Chairwoman of Rhosymedre Village Green Action Group Jackie Palmer said: "We are not against the stadium or the Tesco development - just the locations where they are proposing to build them.
"We have applied to the council to designate the field where the stadium is proposed to be built, a village green.
"It is a lovely location for people to enjoy and it also as historic importance as this is where they quarried the stone for the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct." Newi Cefn Druids want a new 5000 capacity stadium at the site in Rhosymedre.
It is part of a development which will see a new Tesco store built on the Plas Kynnaston site where the Druids currently play.
It's thought the 25,000-sq foot Tesco will create 140 jobs..
