MIAMI (January 20, 2022) – The Miami FC announced their seven-game preseason schedule on Thursday, with the highlight being back-to-back games against Major League Soccer sides. Miami FC will face CF Montreal and Orlando City on Friday, Feb. 11, and Wednesday, Feb. 16, respectively.
“We’re pleased with the schedule we have planned for preseason,” commented Head Coach Anthony Pulis. “The games provide us with a good variety of opponents and I’m sure they’ll all challenge us in different ways. It’s a hugely important period for us to give clarity to the players on exactly how we want to play in all moments of the game. We want to build a really tight knit collective spirit amongst the group and of course get them really well conditioned physically so they’re all fit and raring to go come March 12.”
