Rowdies Notes
This will be the fourth match of Tampa Bay's preseason slate. The Rowdies opened the month with a closed-door match against the Chivas Florida U23 academy, then beat the University of North Florida 2-0 in Jacksonville last weekend. The Rowdies lost 2-1 to Orlando City SC in a closed-door match Wednesday night in Orlando.

Tampa Bay brings a roster of 21 players into this match, including 11 players that were not on the Rowdies roster in 2019. The roster will be supplemented by a number of academy players and guests.

New forward Kyle Murphy has impressed in preseason so far, scoring three goals in three matches.
