Florida Cup 2021 (July 25 & 28, 2021)

The lineup for the 2021 Florida Cup is complete once again, with Atlético Nacional and Club Universidad Nacional joining Everton FC and Millonarios FC. Tournament action begins on Sunday, July 25, at Camping World Stadium, where Everton and Millonarios will meet at 6 p.m. ET.

The new clubs will take the pitch as part of a revamped doubleheader lineup for Wednesday, July 28. Everton will meet Club Universidad Nacional – commonly known as Pumas – at 6 p.m. ET, while Colombian rivals Atlético and Millonarios face off in a clásico scheduled for 8:45 p.m.

“We’re elated to add two more legendary clubs to the tournament lineup, including the first Mexican side to participate in the Florida Cup,” Florida Cup CEO Ricardo Villar said. “Both of these teams bring championship pedigree to Orlando, and we are honored to be able to offer fans from Central Florida and beyond such an exciting trio of matches during this year’s event.”

The changes to the 2021 event lineup complete a shakeup that began when two clubs withdrew from the tournament. Out of respect for the fans who purchased tickets to the original lineup, event organizers refunded all orders. Refunds may take up to 30 days to process. Additional information was sent to ticket holders through their point of purchase.

Because the Florida Cup refunded all original purchases, fans will have to purchase new tickets to the revised event lineup. General admission tickets for each day are on sale at FloridaCup.com. Tickets for July 25 are $20 each, while tickets for the July 28 doubleheader are $35.
