Major League Soccer is Coming to Orlando
Orlando City Soccer Club plans to make the major announcement on Tuesday, according to a club official.
“We can’t officially comment yet, but we’re obviously having a very, very, very, very, very, very big announcement,” Chris Jones, a spokesperson for the club told Reuters. “It’s probably a badly kept secret.”
The club overcame the largest obstacle last month when Orange County officials approved plans for a new $81 million, 18,000-seat stadium, not far from the Magic’s Amway Arena.
The Orlando franchise is one of four expansion teams MLS is expected to announce by 2020.
