[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN] The defending NASL champion New York Cosmos will head to the United Arab Emirates in early March for preseason training. They will be based in Dubai at the UAE Football Association’s brand-new training complex.

NASL: 2014 Preseason Schedule

“We are extremely excited about this trip,” Cosmos chairman Seamus O’Brien said. “This is a fantastic opportunity for our players and coaches to train in world-class facilities and experience the magnificent hospitality of Dubai.”

During their two-week stay, the Cosmos will play training matches against three UAE Arabian Gulf League teams.

“The coaching staff and players are very much looking forward to this tour,” Coach Giovanni Savarese said. “It’s always good to travel in the offseason to help build camaraderie on the team, but this is a special trip that will help us prepare to defend our NASL championship.”

OTTAWA SIGNINGS. Ottawa Fury FC added two more Canadians with the signings of 19-year-old goalie Chad Bush, a PDL all-conference pick, and former Montreal Impact forward Pierre-Rudolph Mayard, who played most recently for the Rochester Rhinos.
