March to the Match Podcast: Orlando City owner says "we believe we're on track to join MLS by 2015"



Wednesday, July 31

Direct From KC

In this special All-Star edition from Kansas City, former Wizards icons Tony Meola and Jimmy Conrad join Jonah to talk about how Sporting KC have completely transformed their old stomping grounds. And both admit, they'd love to lace 'em up just one more day to experience the Sporting Park crowd. Plus, Orlando City co-owner Phil Rawlins, in town to hobnob with MLS bigwigs, stops by to update his club's quest to join MLS: "We believe we're on track for 2015."
