Orlando City’s successful bid to secure public funding for a soccer stadium project has cleared the way for MLS to return to Florida, and the result is the likely first step in the league’s rapid push towards 24 teams.
Episode 83 of The SBI Show takes a look at Orlando City’s soon-to-be successful bid to join MLS, and what it means for the league, and how the rest of the expansion field looks as MLS takes aim on rapid expansion in the coming years.
