Orlando City SC Announces MLS Signing

Orlando, Fla. –Orlando City SC announced Wednesday that Midfielder Yordany Alvarez will join the club as its second Major League Soccer (MLS) signing for the inaugural 2015 season. Alvarez comes back to Orlando after leading the Lions to their first USL PRO Championship in 2011, gaining valuable experience during his time in MLS with Real Salt Lake.

“We’re obviously delighted to have Yordany back,” said Orlando City Head Coach Heath. “We have an MLS-calibre player returning to us. I’m really excited to have him with us again and looking forward to the future with him on the squad.“

To acquire Alvarez, the club traded its lowest 4th round SuperDraft pick in 2017.
