Orlando City Soccer to expand into Osceola County

The brand new stadium in Osceola County will soon be sporting some purple.

Orlando City Soccer Club has acquired the rights to the arena, adding the 5,400 seat stadium located on the grounds of the Club's new training complex at Osceola Heritage Park.

The former baseball park will undergo a makeover to become a top of the line soccer stadium.

The Club will make the stadium the new home field for Orlando City B starting in the 2020 United Soccer League (USL) League One season.

The rights acquirement comes beside the move of OCSC moving to the training facility in Osceola Heritage Park.

That Orlando City SC Training Complex features four fields, a fitness, training and recovery center, a players’ lounge, meal room and a film room.

Orlando Heritage Park's website quotes Orlando City SC CEO Alex Leitão saying:

"The addition of Osceola County Stadium is another major step in the growth and expansion of our Club infrastructure alongside Exploria Stadium, the Orlando City SC Training Complex at Osceola Heritage Park and the Orlando Pride training facility at Sylvan Lake Park. Not only will the stadium provide a new home field for Orlando City B, but it will complete the move in having our entire men's development structure at one location; a location that all players - from our Development Academy to USL League One to the First Team - will call home. We are extremely excited to expand our training complex and to reinforce our commitment with a high-class soccer infrastructure for our players, staff and fans."

While Robb Larson, general manager of OHP/ASM Global says,  "The addition of Orlando City B to our stadium is very exciting. This, in addition to the previously announced training complex, marks another milestone in our growth as we welcome the world of soccer to our facility,"
