Orlando has embraced soccer, and much of the embrace comes from the success of their United Soccer League Pro Division (USL Pro) team, the Orlando City Soccer Club.
The team has seen so much support that in November 2013 they were officially named the 21st soccer club in Major League Soccer (MLS) - the top professional league in North America.
Fans have flocked to the Fifth Third Back Field at the Citrus Bowl to watch their Orlando City in action.
From chants to consistent cheering, the home crowd thrives on giving their team home field advantage.
The Orlando City Soccer Club plays regular season games from March until October, and tickets are reasonable priced.
In 2016 the club will move to their permanent home, the Orlando City Stadium. The future home is currently under construction and 25,000+ fans can expect to pack out the venue when it opens.
With great success thus far in the USL Pro, the Orlando City has much bigger plans for the future of their franchise.
With motivated ownership on board the club is looking to take the league and the country by storm.
While the world knows the sport as Football, Soccer has grown rapidly in North America.
The world has taken notice, given the inroads made when Superstar David Beckham arrived in the MLS a few seasons ago.
Although Beckham and his underwear modeling have left, the sport continues to grow at an astounding rate.
Orlando City has Ricardo 'Kaka' Izecson dos Santos Leite, an attacking midfielder, who hails from Brazil and has played for Real Madrid and Milan prior to his move to Central Florida.
With several professional sports available to watch for sports fans in Orlando, the Orlando City Soccer Club is rapidly growing popularity.
There is no better place than watching professional soccer in a stadium that provides an up-close atmosphere.
Chant long and cheer loud for the Orlando City Soccer Club!
