With over 43,000 tickets sold Orlando City is close to filling the citrus bowl again. Orlando City president Phil Rawlins says “We are really, really close to being able to tell you we’ve sold out the bowl again for a second year, which to me is amazing.”

Returning starters and fan favorites midfielder Kaká and defender Brek Shea to the Lions this season will add familiarity to the team. In addition to the returning starters the Lions will also add veteran midfielder Antonio Nocerino who will be making his first Major League Soccer debut Sunday when he suits up for the Lions.
