Orlando City SC joins MLS as the 21st club

By Olivia Curran

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.
