The Pride will host their first training session of the year on Monday, Feb. 19, nine days before their first preseason game. The day prior, the Pride will report to Orlando Health, the Club’s jersey sponsor and official medical team, for preseason medical evaluations. B-roll footage and comments from select players will be shared with media following the evaluations.
Orlando will play three preseason matches, the first on Feb. 28 against Florida State University, followed by a March 3 match at University of Central Florida and a March 8 game at University of South Florida.
The Pride have faced FSU and USF in each of its previous preseasons, while 2018 will mark the first time the Pride play fellow Orlando-based side UCF.
The matches at FSU and USF will be open to the public, while the March 3 match at UCF will be closed to the public. The friendly at FSU will have free admission, while tickets to the March 8 game at USF can be purchased here.
