Leyton Orient will play the New York Cosmos at Brisbane Road on 24th July at 7:30pm. The New York Cosmos are preparing for competitive football for the first time in 28 years, as they will play in the North American Soccer League for the 2013 season. The club was reformed in August 2010.
The Cosmos started their pre-season campaign in style with a 6-0 victory over Newtown Pride FC.
The last time the New York Cosmos visited England was in August 2011. They made the trip to Old Trafford for Paul Scholes’ testimonial match, but they suffered a heavy 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.
Orient were due to play Aldershot on the 24th July but that fixture has now been replaced by the match against the Cosmos.
