ORLANDO, Fla. – After a long wait, Orlando City will return to action this weekend to kick off the 2016 season in the Citrus Bowl.

 

Orlando City will take on Real Salt Lake.

 

The Lions are coming off a roller coaster inaugural season, just missing the final playoff spot.

 

The team hopes to begin its sophomore MLS season with a bang when it attempts to "Fill the Bowl" with another sellout crowd.

 

Last year 62,510 fans showed up for the team's inaugural home game.

 

Orlando City says less than 7,000 tickets are left to this year's home opener.
