I didn't see an existing thread anywhere, I figure this needed the attention. MLS and ownership should finalize the franchise agreement in 4-6 weeks, which should basically be a formality. The $70 million expansion fee has already been agreed on. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com...ccer-club-orlando-ballet-orlando-philharmonic It's interesting to note that OCSC is in the rare position to face practically no competition for it's product for most of its season. It has the corporate support of the Orlando Magic, whose season starts just as the MLS season ends. And regionally it only competes with the troubled Tampa Bay Rays until football season starts. Of course skepticism is warranted, based on the past history of non-football sports in Florida, but the level of support the team has gotten at lower divisions suggests a better outcome.
