The Lions will enter USA and Canadaâ€™s top flight competition in 2015 and will play their home matches at the revamped Citrus Bowl in downtown Orlando for their first season.
Orlando City are currently playing at Disney Worldâ€™s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Lake Buena Vista but will return to their spiritual home for one final season before moving on again.
The following year the reigning USL PRO champions will move into their own soccer-specific stadium, just a mile down the road, but the decision to kick off at the Citrus Bowl has fans showing plenty of excitement.
â€śWe always knew we were going to spend some time there at the new Citrus Bowl,â€ť said Jared Ambrose, a director with Orlando Cityâ€™s Iron Lion Firm supportersâ€™ group.
â€śBeing able to spend a full year there again is something weâ€™re looking forward to. The Citrus Bowl has been kind of like our home, itâ€™s where weâ€™ve been and all weâ€™ve really known prior to this year.
â€śWeâ€™re going to treat 2015 like a bit of a homecoming for us.â€ť
