After Florida lost the Miami Fusion and Tampa Bay Munity, it took 14 seasons until MLS returned to the Sunshine State. Orlando was originally founded in 2010, playing in the second division (USL) until becoming an expansion side in MLS in 2015. Their purple and gold color scheme and lion sigil give Orlando a distinct look in the league. The club began its run in MLS with one of the biggest names in world football over the past 20 years, Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Cup Winner with Brazil, Kaka. Orlando has affiliations with top-flight teams across the globe, including Stoke City in the English Premier League, Wolfsburg in Germany, and Benfica in Portugal, which is reflected in the team’s international roster.

Designed after European designs seen in iconic stadiums like Borussia Dortmund’s Singla Iduna Park, the north is free of seats, open to general admission, and was the first safe standing section of a stadium in MLS.
