Major League Soccer’s return to the state of Florida takes place today, some 14 years since the league left the Sunshine State, as Orlando City plays host to New York City FC (5pm, ESPN) in the debut match for both teams.
The Florida Citrus Bowl will be filled with more than 60,000 fans to witness the inaugural match for the newest teams in the league. Kaka and Orlando City will look to get off to a winning start against David Villa and NYCFC, which will be led by Jason Kreis, who is coaching his first MLS match since 2013, when he left Real Salt Lake to take the NYCFC coaching job.
The day’s other two MLS matches feature the New York Red Bulls traveling to Sporting Kansas City (7pm, Fox Sports 1), while the Seattle Sounders take on the New England Revolution at CenturyLink Field (9pm, Fox Sports 1).
