EverBank Friendly
Friday 25 April 2014 20:19

Fulham Football Club and D.C. United are scheduled to play a friendly match at Jacksonville’s EverBank Field on Saturday 26th July. The match will be part of pre-season preparations for the Club in advance of the 2014/15 season, while it will be a mid-season friendly for D.C. United. The Jacksonville Jaguars and SMG are hosting the event.

“We’re looking forward to staging this match for fans of both types of football and introducing Fulham not only to Jacksonville, but to fans throughout the state and nation,” said Shahid Khan, Owner of Fulham and the Jaguars. “There is great passion in the Jacksonville area for soccer, and this will be a rare opportunity to see our Fulham team play in Jacksonville, and against one of the premier professional franchises in American soccer.”

D.C. United plays in Major League Soccer (MLS) and is a four-time league champion. Ticket information for this match will be provided at a later date, along with starting time and further details.

Having a bubble? You can take a Englishman to America but you can't teach him the language. LOL

I'll certainly look at my options. Have you selected a hotel?

BTW, you'll get to see Eddie Johnson. Isn't that exciting?

Yeah, I've been told that too often, I just say my brains too old to be rewired with another language!!

SWMBO found a good hotel just within walking distance of the ground, and also cheap flights/drive into Sandford. Likely we'll be there from the Thursday thru Sunday (so she can visit the beach for a day). We're waiting for Fulham to give confirmation and ticket offers, and then we'll book up. I'm hoping Heather and/or Mo (FUSA) will assist in organizing a meet and we can share the hotel/flight info on there.  I'll make sure there's a sticky on here as well for the fixture.

Oh yeah, fast Eddie, wonder if he's found his third gear yet!

Just occurred to me that if we can get enough bods together we could request a meeting with Khan either at the hotel or at the match site. Perhaps we could talk him into some sort of TV package or at least a round of Fullers.

I like your idea YankeeJim, a meeting would be best. Maybe discuss a youtube broadcast of matches if possible or at the very least get a Man City prematch video(thats top stuff, even if it is City)

Looks like things could be complicated a bit with a concert and video unveil afterwords.

Still waiting on confirmation from Fulham/DC/Jags as to tickets, etc.

Fulham/DC have announced it, but nothing on the Jags site as such.
