Tomorrow's friendly against Brazilian Serie A side Ponte Preta will be televised after all. Orlando City announced that MY65 (WRBW) will air the game locally, despite earlier indications from the club that the game would not likely be on TV in the U.S.

Thankfully, it looks like everything got worked out and fans who can't attend can still watch the game, with Tom Traxler and Kevin Hartman calling the action.

The fixture, which will also be broadcast on local radio stations Real Radio 104.1 FM and Spanish station La Grande 1030 AM, will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.

Tickets are still available for the match and the game is included on the 2015 Orlando City season ticket package, so if you're a season ticket member, you've already got your way into the game.

This will be the Lions' eighth international friendly in five seasons. Previous opponents include Newcastle United, AS Roma, Stoke City and Brazilian squads São Paulo and Fluminense.
