Orlando City Soccer Club is an American professional soccer team based in Orlando, Florida that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS). Orlando City SC was announced as the league’s twenty-first franchise on November 19, 2013.
Orlando City’s downtown stadium will be a 100% privately funded project. The site is two blocks from the Amway Center, within walking distance of the downtown bar district, one of the best locations of any soccer stadium in the country!
Orlando City’s official mascot is Kingston the Lion.
The team’s expansion rights were purchased by Brazilian businessman Flávio Augusto da Silva and Phil Rawlins, owners of the USL Pro Orlando City Soccer Club. The club began playing in the 2015 MLS season alongside the twentieth franchise New York City FC. Orlando City SC is the first MLS franchise located in the state of Florida since the Miami Fusion F.C. and Tampa Bay Mutiny were folded by the MLS following the 2001 Major League Soccer season.
