My sport growing up was Soccer (Football or Futbol for those of you not in the 50 states). I knew all the players in the Portland Timbers of the NASL, saw Pele play live, and played as a kid through sixth grade. So it makes me happy that Orlando has a soccer team that is in line to be added to Major League Soccer during the league’s next expansion.
But if you want to see MLS stars in Orlando, you don’t have to wait that long. The Disney Pro Soccer Classic will feature 8 teams playing 14 games at ESPN WWOS over the course of a week. Participating teams include: Houston Dynamo, Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact, FC Dallas, Sporting Kansas City, Orlando City Soccer Club (USL Champions), and Sweden’s B.K. Hacken.
Games start February 24th.
