Orlando City increase capacity for Vancouver Whitecaps clash

Orlando City SC have announced that they have increased their capacity for their second home fixture of the 2015 MLS season.

Due to popular demand, the expansion club have stepped it up to 23,000 for the March 21 meeting with Vancouver Whitecaps following the success of their season opener at the Citrus Bowl on the weekend.

The Lions drew 1-1 with fellow newcomers New York City FC in front of more than 62,000 fans on Sunday and again there is a high request for tickets for their next match in downtown Orlando.

"Saturday night's attendance was simply astounding and the demand continues to be very strong for our upcoming home matches," said Club Founder and President Phil Rawlins.

"Based on that response we will continue to review capacity for upcoming matches on a case-by-case basis."

This weekend, Orlando City play their first away game of the MLS season when they meet Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.
