Twitter reacts to… Orlando City SC & Stoke City’s new partnership

So on a busy Friday for Orlando City SC with the evening MLS fixture against New York Red Bulls to look forward to at Camping World Stadium, headlines were also made during the daytime.

And that news is that Orlando City SC have today announced an official affiliation with English Premier League outfit Stoke City.

According to the official report from the club, the new partnership will encompass player exchange opportunities, accessibility to shared scouting, player recruitment systems and cross-promotional marketing for both sides on either side of the Atlantic.

With not only Phil Rawlins but also Adrian Heath hailing from the Stoke-on-Trent area, the two clubs have always shared positive relations.

Indeed, the Orlando connection already runs deep with Lewis Neal and Brek Shea having represented the Potters in the past, not to mention James O’Connor who now manages Louisville City in USL of course.

So with Orlando City SC and Stoke City having announced their new formal partnership today, the news has unsurprisingly caused a splash amongst both Lions and Potters fans on Twitter.

Here’s some of the best tweets from the afternoon as metaphorical Geoff Cameron and Cyle Larin swap rumours ensued!

The classic player tugs of war!

A USMNT star coming home maybe!?

Love at first sight…


Start of something special?

More OCSC merch in the UK?? Yippee!!!

And what’s more, yes, we’d absolutely love greater accessibility to Orlando City SC merchandise right here in the UK, Mr Chairman!
