Earlier this year, Major League Soccer announced the addition of the 20th team to the league - New York City FC. 

Most thought that 20 would be the magic number for 2015. The 2013 USL Pro champions Orlando City SC had a different idea in mind. 

Fighting to build a world-class stadium in downtown Orlando was just another goal on their list. Their main priority was to join the other 20 teams in the top league in the United States and Canada. They wanted to become an MLS team by 2015. 

And today, they accomplished that goal. 

Congratulations to Orlando City SC. It's a big day for Major League Soccer, and we're excited to be a part of it.

The Iranian national team notched the top spot in their group for 2015 AFC Asian Cup Qualifying today. Quakes defender Steven Beitashour earned his second start and third cap with the Iranian national team, playing the full 90 . 

Iran may have defeated Lebanon 4-1 this morning, but not without heavy hearts. Hours before the match, the Iranian Embassy was bombed in Beirut, killing 23 people. The match still went on as planned, but spectators were not allowed into the stadium. 

The final round of group play for Iran continues next March. The team returns to Tehran and hosts Kuwait on March 3.

So, ready, set... MO. November isn't over yet!
