For the third time in four years, Orlando City Soccer Club are USL PRO regular season champions.
OCSC clinched the title during a scoreless away match at Wilmington Hammerheads on Wednesday night, which navigated Orlando to 59 points (club record) in the standings with one game left to play before the playoffs.
Orlando City host the Richmond Kickers on Saturday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports for their last game of the season. They will also honor former OCSC player Yordany ‘Gio’ Alvarez before the game after announcing his retirement from professional soccer.
The Lions also have home advantage throughout the playoffs, which is expected to kick off on September 13.
