For the first time in three years, the NASL club will play an international friendly at the end of March.
"Our match against Valur FC gives us a unique opportunity to play an international friendly against a strong opponent in preparation for our upcoming season,” commented Rowdies General Manager Perry Van Der Beck. “They are one of Iceland's premier clubs and we anticipate a great game. We look forward to the challenge."
Valur FC is based in Reykjavik and finished fifth in last season's domestic league.
The Rowdies are 3-1-0 (W-D-L) so far this preseason. The Valur FC match falls two days after Tampa Bay plays St. Leo University.
The last time the Rowdies played against a European team was on April 14, 2011 in a 1-0 victory over English club Bolton Wanderers at Al Lang Stadium.
