MCC will host Nepal at the Home of Cricket on Tuesday 19 July 2016.
The match will take place the day after the scheduled final day of the England v Pakistan Investec Test match.
It will be the first time MCC have played Nepal at Lord's and the teams will play the 50-over match on the same pitch that was used for the Test match.
MCC toured Nepal as recently as November 2015 and the Club continues to enjoy a strong relationship with Cricket Association Nepal.
Nepal captain Paras Khadka played for MCC in the Emirates t20 tournament in Dubai in 2015 - and is likely to feature in the showpiece match at Lord's in 2016.
The fixture is one of many to take place on the Main Ground at Lord's next summer, with the full fixture list now released.

MCC face Wales on the Tuesday 26 April.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
