Orlando City Breaks Record Attendance With 20,000+ Fans at USL Pro Final: Daily Soccer Report

Orlando City Soccer Club won the 2013 USL PRO Championship Game Saturday night after defeating Charlotte Eagles 7-4 in front of 20,886 fans at the Citrus Bowl in downtown Orlando.

The 20,000+ attendance was the largest attendance ever for an Orlando City game and an USL PRO match.

“To play in front of more than 20,000 tonight was amazing,” said Orlando City Head Coach Adrian Heath. “It’s a little bit surreal because I’ve never been involved in a game like that in my life (scoring 7 goals).“

The attendance Saturday night shattered the club’s former mark of 11,220 set in the 2011 USL PRO Championship Game by more than 9,800 fans. The attendance also set a new USL PRO record.

Congratulations to Orlando City for breaking the attendance record, and showing that there’s enough demand in Central Florida for a MLS team.
