Orlando City President Phil Rawlins made it clear that the club is content in the USL Pro. 

"Our natural stepping stone would be from USL to MLS," Rawlins said during a pep rally Friday afternoon in front of City Hall. "I'm looking forward to the playoffs this Friday and I'm sure with the crowd turnout, we can easily win." 
The Lions dominated the league, finishing with 57 points and leading second place Rochester Rhinos with 16 points. 

Statistically, Orlando City improved a lot  this season than last season. 

this year, the Lions only conceded 18 goals, however, scored 50 goals, 14 more than the Charleston Battery. 

16 points above second place Rochester Rhinos can only state that Orlando City are in a league of their own, right? 

With the potential joining of the NASL out of the question, the Lions look forward to repeating history again, when Wilmington visit for a semi-final match-up. 

A victory Friday night will provide Orlando City home-field advantage in the USL Pro final on Sept. 8.
