MLS 2017: Orlando opens season up in new stadium and there were some wild scenes
This is certainly one of the top atmosphere's in the league
Orlando City and NYCFC made their 2017 MLS debuts on Sunday in Orlando’s stunning, new state-of-the-art stadium.
Orlando City Stadium, which seats 25,500 and, hosted the Sunday’s opening weekend match -- a 1-0 win by the Lions. Though it wasn’t the most entertaining match we will see all season, there were plenty of must-see moments.
Here’s a look at the stadium before the match.
Tifo game: A+.
Very South American or eastern European feel with the smoke.
Opening minute with smoke and tifo.
And the winning goal by Cyle Larin.
But, it wasn’t all fine and dandy for Orlando. Their superstar, Kaka, left the match after just 10 minutes played with a hamstring injury. It will be evaluated Monday.
In the end, after winning just nine of their 34 league matches last year, Orlando has three points and is off to a fine start. Now that is a fine Sunday overall.
