Just a few days after his long-time head coach was fired and not even 24 hours after a disappointing 0-0 draw at home, midfielder Kevin Molino is out at what looks to be Sam's Club promoting Orlando City's sponsor beer, Heineken. He doesn't look all too thrilled about it though. I wouldn't be either if I were him. (Photo Credit: Kevin Molino Snapchat [molinokevin])
The folks over at LaCasaca.com have re-imagined MLS kits to pay tribute to Hispanic Heritage Month. Orlando City's kit is extremely colorful, using the club's ties to star midfielder Kaká and Brazil to bring the color of Rio street life to our beloved purple shirts. You can check out all the designs here.
While Darwin Ceren may have been the best player on the pitch for Orlando City the past two games, it was Kaká and Cyle Larin who were named to the MLS Team of the Week (and Brek Shea made the bench). Counting just Sunday's match, both Kaká and Larin were deserving (and, OK, maybe Larin was deserving when considering both games this week), but certainly the captain had a rough outing at D.C. United in midweek. Ceren was brilliant in both games and has been a quiet emerging star in MLS this season. We'll take the league recognition though. Congrats to the captain, Cyle and Brek!
I create weekly match posters for fun that I share within the /r/OCLions subreddit. I see a lot of content from maneland posted there and thought I would share some of my art. Here is this weeks poster. Other posters can be found here .
Orlando City SC defender Rafael Ramos is the first Lion named to an MLS Team of the Week for his workmanlike effort against the Houston Dynamo on Friday night. The Portuguese U-20 international shut down the experienced duo of DaMarcus Beasley and Brad Davis on Houston's talented left side in Orlando's 1-0 road victory.
Orlando City Founder and President Phil Rawlins was named 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year by i4 Business Magazine, which serves as a voice for Orlando's economic corridor. Rawlins was officially presented the award by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer at the magazine's award ceremony last night. In the past year, Rawlins has helped Orlando City ascend to MLS and begin construction on a new downtown soccer stadium.
