Orlando City fans come out in record numbers to see Lions hoist USL PRO championship | SIDELINE
USL PRO is technically the third division in the American soccer pyramid. But the record 20,886 that came out to support for Orlando City in the USL PRO championship game was not exactly your typical third-division audience.
If you weren't there, the video provides a glimpse of the passion on display Saturday night at the Florida Citrus Bowl, where OCSC captured the title in a wild 7-4 victory over the Charlotte Eagles. Sporting Kansas City's on-loan forward Dom Dwyer scored four goals in the contest, living up to his "Darth Dwyer" banner on show.
If you were a skeptic about Orlando's appetite for soccer in their quest to become the next MLS expansion team, the scenes will likely impress you.
