Proudly sporting armor made of red, purple, and gold, Orlando City continues to storm through its 2012 schedule after an impressive debut in 2011, when it celebrated its inaugural season in style by winning the USL Pro championship. During the club's ascension to the top, a series of franchise firsts transformed into stepping-stones toward the title, including the first regular-season win and first international win.
This season, the club's league-best 10–1–4 record can be attributed to the emergence of forward Dennis Chin and midfielder Kevin Molino, who have combined for a total of 23 points in 15 games. Also in Orlando's arsenal of weapons is midfielder John Rooney, the younger brother of international superstar Wayne Rooney. From sideline seats, fans can scout the mixture of familiar and fresh faces, all while cheering and imagining the Citrus Bowl in its original capacity as a cereal bowl for local NBA players.
Orlando City Soccer Club
Donning armor of red, purple, and gold, Orlando City has established itself as one of the USL Pro’s most dominant teams, winning USL Pro championships in 2011—its inaugural season—and 2012. After their second championship, the squad’s success attracted the attention of the MLS’s Sporting Kansas City, who will serve as Orlando City’s parent squad for two years, beginning with the 2013 season.
