It was announced today that Fulham FC will play MLS team, D.C. United in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, July 26.
The game will take place at Jacksonville Jaguars' EverBank Field and will serve as part of the English Premier League team's preparations for the 2014-15 season.
D.C. United will however be mid-way through their MLS campaign when they take to the field in the event organized by the Jaguars.
Shahid Khan, the owner of both Fulham and the Jaguars, expressed his delight at being able to announce the fixture:
"We're looking forward to staging this match for fans of both types of football and introducing Fulham not only to Jacksonville, but to fans throughout the state and nation," he explained.
"There is great passion in the Jacksonville area for soccer, and this will be a rare opportunity to see our Fulham team play in Jacksonville, and against one the premier professional franchises in American soccer."
It remains to be seen whether Fulham will be travelling to the United States as a Premier League outfit in the summer of 2014, with their top flight status hanging in the balance at present with just three games remaining in the current campaign.
The West London side currently sit 19th in the table, two points away from safety.
D.C. United meanwhile have eight points from their opening six games of the MLS season.
