Pictures from the Atlético Pantoja Twitter account revealed that Jack Gaeta, Manager of Team Operations, was on the ground and that a friendly was finalized.
“Everything is ready and coordinated for the friendly vs the New York Cosmos on March 3rd at 8pm at Estadio Olímpico,” said the Dominican club’s tweet.
At time of writing, no official release has come from the club in regards to the friendly.
With just under half of February remaining, the New York Cosmos have announced 16 players so far, although Cosmos Chairman Rocco Commisso indicated 17 had been signed on the most recent TICCPod. The Cosmos today shared that a new player will be revealed on Tuesday.
