Armada FC Adds Scrimmage with UNF to Preseason Schedule

Mar 12, 2018

The Jacksonville Armada FC will return to its home venue of Hodges Stadium for a preseason match with the University of North Florida’s mens soccer team on Wednesday, March 14.

"We are looking forward to playing at Hodges Stadium and always enjoy our preseason matchup against UNF. They always provide a good test for us," said head coach Mark Lowry.

The match will be the fourth preseason exhibition of 2018 and is critical as the team continues to adjust with many offseason roster changes. The team is coming off a 2-0 win against Flagler College on Feb. 26. A goal each by newcomer Conor Doyle and returning forward Ciarán Kilduff propelled the Armada FC to the victory.

"Our body of work over the past month has been fantastic," said Lowry. "We are now in the process of adding the final details at either end of the field and this game offers us a chance to improve on that."

This will be the third time the Armada FC has met the UNF Ospreys. Jacksonville played to a 0-0 draw with UNF in the 2016 and 2017 preseason at Hodges Stadium.

Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. and the scrimmage will be free and open to the public, but a parking fee of $2 is required in Lot 18 next to Hodges Stadium. More information about parking on the UNF campus can be found HERE.
