    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – In preparation for the 2014 Honduran Apertura and the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) seasons, Olimpia announced Tuesday that it will contest a pair of friendlies later this month in the United States.

    The Lions will face fellow CCL qualifier Municipal of Guatemala on July 25 at Joe K. Butler Stadium in Houston, before squaring off against El Salvador’s Aguila two days later at Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans.

    Olimpia opened its preseason schedule on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Nicaragua’s Walter Ferreti as Byron Mendez and Renan Benguche Jr. struck for one goal apiece.

    In addition to the U.S. encounters, the 28-time Honduran champion will also play UPN (July 16 in Amarateca), Honduras Progreso (July 18 in El Progreso) and Sula La Lima (July 19 in La Lima) in preseason play.

    The Merengues will open their seventh CCL campaign on August 5 at Guyana’s Alpha United.
