Orlando City SC announced a new step in the investment of its development pyramid today, as the Orlando City Development Academy will make the Orlando City SC Training Complex at Osceola Heritage Park its new official training grounds. The DA will join Orlando City SC of Major League Soccer in moving to the Club’s newly announced, state-of-the-art facility.
The Orlando City DA is set to move at the start of the 2019-20 academic year, while the Lions will remain at Sylvan Lake Park, their current training facility, through the end of the 2019 MLS season. Orlando City B, the Club’s USL League One side, will finish its first season in League One at Montverde Academy before moving its training operations to Osceola Heritage Park for the 2020 season.
In a historic move, the Orlando Pride will receive the first-ever customized, exclusive training facility in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), the Club announced today. Following the 2019 season, Sylvan Lake Park will undergo a complete renovation, becoming the first training facility in the NWSL that is tailored to and used only by a women’s team.
The move marks the Club’s continued commitment and investment in the long-term identity and sustainability of the Pride.
