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 ...

Please do as it’s always nice to see all the flags and banners up they’ve actually compromised here because from what I gather this mob are usually very strict so they are doing us a turn here imo

I am going to both games, which makes the trip worthwhile.   On the Saturday I have an afternoon game with Rangers and at night can watch the televised Patriots game.   :dance:

Cheers for posting that. Saves me sending of an email later on in the week because I was also wanting them to clarify the situation regarding taking out flags into the ground.

Our first of two games is against Atlético Mineiro of Brazil. This will be played at midnight UK time on Friday 12 January at the Orlando City Stadium.

We will then play Corinthians, also of Brazil, on Saturday 13 January at 6pm UK time. 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?

Good to have a thread about this CH. :thumbup:

I assume it is midnight uk time on Thursday into Friday from 0000 hrs ??

Should be at home training for the Scottish game, not panhandling with Flamenco dancers, as usual priorities all wrong.

Going over there and raising our brand awareness Is a great thing not to mention making a few quid too (heard almost 400k after expenses) - it’s 2 games over a 2/3 day period - even if we are there a week tops it’s an 8-hour flight - we can fly there quicker than it takes to drive to London on a bad day it’s not that big of a deal 

these games will be getting televised to huge markets especially in South America and we need to compete with the tarriers in the USA who have been a few times (who incidentally are going to Dubai a similar journey and doing very little) 

our first game back in almost 3 weeks time is Fraserburgh too 

it’s really not a drama going over here - I thought I was a moaner :)

@minstral is it true that the Toronto Ulster United second goal was offside?
