And The City Turned Purple…


By Laiz Rodrigues

Church Street was almost full, but they kept coming, more and more, nobody was more famous or happier, or richer, everyone was just the same, happy to witness one of the most important moments of Orlando history. 

All it took was one man’s vision, and it was contagious. Mayor Buddy Dyer knew he could transform Downtown Orlando, change everything, to give Orlando a Soccer Team and then get everyone on board for the MLS. Today, we celebrated many battles won, many days of uncertainty put to rest, a better city, a new Stadium and a job well done by all that took a dream to its last consequence.

The walk was certain, more people anyone ever imagined. Little by little like in the games since 2012, more and more came to see the Lions-The Orlando City Soccer. Now another moment starts and we will get to witness the Orlando City Soccer Club write another chapter of their history. Now let’s check the pictures!
