orlando city takes Major league soccer by storm
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – With Orlando City taking MLS by storm as one of the most entertaining game-day atmospheres in the league, the Orlando Citrus Bowl has quickly become a top destination for visitors from all over the world, including well-known celebrities.
With the likes of Kaká and Brek Shea, along with numerous other City stars, being willed forward by over 30,000 supporters each home match, City games have become a must-see attraction in Central Florida – drawing countless celebs to the “Soccer Capital of the South.”
Perhaps the most noticeable (because of their size), have been the Orlando Magic players, who have become regulars since the season opener in March.
Headlined by Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic, the Magic boys have been spotted field-side and in the stands on numerous occasions at the Lions’ games, showing support for their local club.

But, there’s also been countless others who may have slid under the radar if it weren’t for the standard social media photo-op with the “Pres” Phil Rawlins.
Italian legend Paolo Maldini, who played over 600 games with AC Milan between 1985 -2009, swung by to see his old teammate Kaká.
That same night, former NFL Wide Receiver Chad Johnson was also in the building to see his pal. And then there was the World Cup Champion Alex Morgan who came to see her husband Servando Carrasco play in his first home game with City.

Last but not least, two of the funniest personalities to come through an Orlando City game included King of Comedy legend Cedric the Entertainer and comedian/talk show host George Lopez. Both were kitted out in OCSC gear, broadcasting their excitement on social media.
