New York City Football Club Tuesday announced that the team will train and play in Orlando, Fla. and Nashville, Tenn. during the Major League Soccer preseason.
Head coach Domènec Torrent’s men will train in the Sunshine State from Feb. 12-21 and are scheduled to play in the inaugural Orlando City Invitational. City will face hosts Orlando City SC Feb. 16 and Minnesota United Feb. 20 at the Orlando City Soccer Stadium in Orlando.
“Orlando is a great location for part of our preseason schedule,” Torrent said. “This will be an opportunity to continue to implement our style and tactical approach as we prepare for the 2019 season. We’ll be able to play all of our players and try different combinations against two really good MLS sides and get the team in the best possible shape mentally, physically and tactically for the season opener.”
