Cosmos, USMNT U-17s Added To Reading United AC Friendly List



Adding to an already locally impressive friendlies list that consists of the Philadelphia Union and fellow Union affiliate team the Harrisbug City Islanders, Reading United AC announced yesterday that the New York Cosmos and USMNT under-17 team will come to town.

The under-23 Cosmos joined the Player Development League for the 2012 season. It will be the first time in over 25 years that a Cosmos professional team will play a game. A Reading United team official who talked to the Brotherly Game about the friendly was excited to have the Cosmos as a possible new rival in the Northeast.

The other friendly will feature the USMNT under-17 side, which was recently the home of Union Home Grown Player Zach Pfeffer for a tournament in France. The Union managed a draw against the under-17s during their 2011 preseason tour.
