Today the New York Cosmos announced that they will face the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday , February 27. The game will be played at Avaya Stadium kickoff will be at 7 p.m. PST . Avaya Stadium is the Earthquakes new home . It is one of the best stadiums in MLS.
This will mark the first time the Cosmos will play a MLS club in preseason during the modern era.
“Not only will the Earthquakes be a great test for us as we return from the offseason, but we are also looking forward to playing in Avaya Stadium, known for one of the best atmospheres in the country,” said New York Cosmos Coach Giovanni Savarese.
The Earthquakes will be a great test for the Cosmos because they will be able to play a MLS side outside of the U.S Open Cup . The Cosmos have a lot of work to do to get to this preseason match , from resigning players from this past season and adding new faces. It is going to be a great next couple of weeks , because we will hear more preseason fixtures , and hopefully some player signings because its been very quiet in Cosmos Country on that front.
