The Orlando, Miami MLS rivalry has begun

@OrlandoCitySC

Florida fight.

Three months ago, Florida didn't have a single MLS team. Now they have a budding rivalry.

On November 19, Orlando was awarded a team and today, it was announced that Miami would also get a team pending a stadium deal. Now Florida has two teams, but Orlando City SC wants to make sure that everyone knows who got going first. And who did things "the right way."

#BuiltNotBought, like when Phil Rawlins bought the Austin Aztex and moved them to Orlando with the explicit goal of getting a MLS team. Yeah, #BuiltNotBought!

Three years later, they got their team and three years is infinitely longer than zero (check the math, it's true).

They're not going to lose the sex appeal game either.

Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight.
