Defeat in a historic match

“Ararat” held second and the main friendly of the US training camp and faced legendary “New York Cosmos”.

The match against NASL champions, who has some famous players in its squad, was quite interesting and exciting.

To note, FC Fresno Fuego striker Christian Chaney, who made good impression during friendly with our team, participated in the match and represented “Ararat”.

On 11th minute Benik Hovhannisyan was sent off. Because of friendly status of the game, “Ararat” was allowed to substitute Hovhannisyan to another player during the halftime. Moises Orozco continued the game.

“Ararat” created goal-scoring opportunities in the both halves but conceded twice.

On February 23 “Ararat” will hold the last friendly in USA and face South Korean side Seongnam FC.
