***Florida Cup Thread***

Recommended Posts

Our first of two games is against Atlético Mineiro of Brazil. This will be played at midnight UK time on Friday 12 January (Thursday 11th at 7pm EST) at the Orlando City Stadium.

We will then play Corinthians, also of Brazil, on Saturday 13 January at 6pm UK time (1PM EST). This will be played at the Spectrum Stadium in Orlando. 

Both games will be shown live on Premier Sports and I imagine RTV will be showing them too.

This should hopefully be a good experience for the players, and with Murty seemingly keen to get new players in early in January, it could be useful for team bonding also. 

Anyone heading over?

I'll likely subscibe to Premier Sports for the month then cancel. Two games for a tenner isn't bad.

It's also going to be shown on ESPN in America and ESPN Deportes in Mexico and South America, so there should be quite a few decent streams.

Not that bad too be honest mate flights from Glasgow £316 and villa £155 .. I know it’s soon after Christmas for a lot of people but I think that’s ok for flights and nice digs for a week.

i don’t want to know what I’ll possibly spend at the international drive outlets though I’ll be doing extra shifts for months to claw that back

Aye those prices are very reasonable actually. 

I fancied going over but I used up most of my annual leave pretty early last year and it doesn't get renewed until February so was buggered by the time it got announced.

My sons team played Atletico Miniero in Loch Lomond tournament at under 17 a few years ago and and strangely enough they were poor. Only beat them 2 1 but they were technically not brilliant and no little fight. Should have been more like 5.

This information may be of use to some folk - I was reading up on the Orlando City Stadium and they are quite strict they have a no flags or banners policy so wanted some clarity and they sent this ...
