History and description
Exploria Stadium, also known as Orlando City Stadium, is the recently opened new soccer-specific stadium of Orlando City. The new stadium was part of the proposal for Orlando City to join the MLS in 2015.
The plans for the stadium were announced in the summer of 2015, and shortly after building works started. Orlando City played their first two seasons in the MLS at the Orlando Citrus Bowl before moving to the new Orlando City stadium in 2017.
The stadium was initially planned to have 19,000 places, but this got increased to 25,500 following strong attendances in Orlando City’s first two MLS seasons. The stadium was the first in the MLS to have a standing section. It was fully privately funded.
Orlando City Stadium officially opened on 24 February 2017 and the first match, a league match between Orlando City and New York City FC, was played a few weeks later on the 5th of March.
The stadium was renamed Exploria Stadium in 2019 following a naming rights sponsorship deal.
