One Response to Orlando City to Become 21st MLS Team and Will Launch in March 2015, Confirms Club President

  1. DanB says:

    I have no respect for Orlando City SC front office. They ripped a team out of Austin dropped them from D2 to D3. Then push towards MLS. And when they finally get their announcement they pretend that they were an Expansion club instead of a club that was relocated. Completely Classless.
