TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As the spring portion of training continues for the Florida State soccer program, the Seminoles will host the Orlando Pride of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) for a spring scrimmage on February 28 at the Seminole Soccer Complex. The exhibition match will begin at 6:00 p.m. and admission is free for all fans.
“We are excited to host the Orlando Pride and really looking forward to having Toni Pressley and Carson Pickett come back and play here in Tallahassee again,” said FSU head coach Mark Krikorian. “Both of them had fantastic careers for us here at FSU and have gone on to have outstanding careers as professionals. For us, we are looking forward to a very challenging game on Wednesday night, but also a chance to reconnect with two great former Seminoles.”
The Pride finished third in the NWSL regular season standings in 2017 and lost in the semifinals of the NWSL Playoffs to eventual champion, Portland. There are two former Seminoles currently on the roster for the Pride, Toni Pressley and Carson Pickett, and many more professional and international stars will be on the Pride roster for the scrimmage on Wednesday.
It will be the third time that Florida State and Orlando have played a spring scrimmage, but it will be the first time the two teams will play in Tallahassee. Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. for the match.
