The New York Cosmos scheduled their first preseason action of March with a trip to South Carolina to face the Charleston Battery.

The match will take place on Saturday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. ET in Charleston’s MUSC Health Stadium.

This marks the first time that the Cosmos will square off the USL side.

The Battery finished third in the regular season standings of the USL’ Eastern Conference and made it the Conference Semifinals of the playoffs before being knocked off by Louisville City FC.

The Cosmos have already lined up three preseason matches for month of February when they travel to California. They first face Ararat Yerevan FC of the Armenian first division on February 20. They follow that up with a February 24 match up with PDL side Fresno Fuego and then a high-profile tune up against MLS’ San Jose Earthquakes on February 27.
