Orlando City's final USL Pro season kicks off on Saturday when the Lions visit Blackbaud Stadium to face off against the Charleston Battery (7:30 p.m. ET WATCH HERE).

OCSC most recently made more additions to their squad, acquiring a total of four players in one week.

After receiving a total of four players from Sporting Kansas City prior to the 2013 season, Orlando were only able to nab midfielder Mikey Lopez on-loan. While the midfield position looks to be stacked-up compared to other USL Pro clubs, the Lions added a ninth midfielder earlier in the week after they announced the signing of former University of Akron midfielder Aodhan Quinn.

Depth in the goalkeeping position also expanded with the signing of Rafael Diaz, who played recently for St. John's University, while the defense also got a boost after Orlando welcomed back defender Justin Clark.

All four players are signed on for the 2014 USL Pro season, with the exception of Mikey Lopez who can be called up from Sporting KC at anytime during the season.

Below is the latest update on the Lions 2014 roster:
