The Tampa Bay Rowdies and Jacksonville Armada FC wrapped up their Spring Seasons against each other in a 1-1 draw in Jacksonville. Now, the Florida rivalry shifts to Al Lang Stadium for the clubs' Fall Season opener.
Tampa Bay finished the Spring Season unbeaten in three games, led by Georgi Hristov and Joe Cole's strong attacking play.
Jacksonville is hoping to build off a run of three consecutive draws to end the Spring Season. The Armada FC made some changes to its roster to bolster its attacking prowess, including Swedish pair Alexander Andersson and Nicklas Maripuu, who should be available for next week's contest.
Welsh youth international Danny Barrow started to emerge as a creative hub for Jacksonville and will look to build off those displays heading into the Fall Season.
