Rio de Janeiro, Dec 8 (IANS) Flamengo will play a pre-season friendly against Orlando City next month as part of broader plans to boost the club's profile in the United States, the Brazilian Serie A side said on Thursday.


The fixture will take place on January 27 at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, Flamengo said in a statement on Thursday, reports Xinhua.
