Orlando City Soccer Club Will Play 2014 Home Games at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

The Orlando City Soccer Club announced plans to play its 2014 home games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney World Resort.
This temporary move occurs as the Lions' home stadium, the Florida Citrus Bowl, is undergoing renovations.

Fans can purchase tickets for the 2014 season immediately, while season ticket holders for 2014 will receive first choice for seats for the 2015 season, which is expected to be the Lions' inaugural Major League Soccer season.

There are plans to add additional seating around all four sides of the ESPN Wide World of Sports soccer field. The seats will increase capacity to nearly 5,200 seats making it one of the largest soccer venues in Central Florida. Fans will also enjoy free parking and a wide variety of food and beverage choices.

"We hope our fans are as thrilled as we are to call ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex our home field for the 2014 season," said Phil Rawlins, president of Orlando City Soccer Club. "With professional sporting event experience, premier soccer fields and world-class amenities, this facility will enable us to play all of our home games in one location and in a venue where our fans will be closer to our players than ever before."

The ESPN Wide World of Sports complex also hosts the Disney Pro Soccer Classic, the Atlanta Braves spring training, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camps, and the NBA Pre-Draft Camp along with other sporting events.

This is a hot ticket in Orlando right now, as the team was all the talk. City were the champs of their league this year.
