“We continue to see a lot of momentum for both these matches and encourage supporters to purchase their tickets early,” said Orlando City President and Founder Phil Rawlins in a press release. “This will be a great event for Orlando, as we look toward bringing many more international matches to our venues.”

The matchup against Costa Rica will be the second-to-last tune up match for Mexico before the 2015 Gold Cup begins in July.

El Tri have six total friendlies remaining before their first Gold Cup matchup against Cuba on July 9, but they will also be playing in the Copa America 2015 in June.
