Provided the Collective Bargaining Agreement talks go as planned and there's no work stoppage next year, the Philadelphia Union will play a preseason match on February 7 against Jacksonville Armada FC at EverBank Stadium (where the Jacksonville Jaguars play until they move to Los Angeles or London). The Armada will be playing their inaugural season in the NASL next year, making the Union the first team the Armada will ever face. Remember that in case you're in North Florida - it may win you a drink.

The Union had previously played preseason matches in Orlando and set up preseason camp in Deltona (about half way between Orlando and Daytona Beach along the Interstate 4 corridor), however since Orlando City is entering the league next year the Union will have to find someplace else to train. It's unclear if the 2015 Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic will feature the Union, however given the Union being in Florida at that time and the fact that they've participated in it the past two seasons I wouldn't be surprised if they were there come February.
