The third annual Florida Cup will air every match of the Florida Cup Challenge tournament on Fox Soccer Plus. Every match will also be streamed on Fox Soccer 2 Go.
For those who don't know what the Challenge Series is, in the Florida Cup Challenge series each country has two teams represent them. The teams are divided up by countries: Germany (Bayer 04 Leverkusen & VfL Wolfsburg), Brazil (Clube Atlético Mineiro & Esporte Clube Bahia) and USA/Argentina (Tampa Bay Rowdies, Club Estudiantes de la Plata). Each team will play two matches for points. The winner of the match gets 3 points while a tie gives each team one point. Penalty kicks do take place, and the winning team after penalties gets two points. Whichever country gets the most points wins the tournament.
Below is the schedule and when you can watch the match-ups.
