In case you’d been living on Mars, there’s the small matter of the first ever Orlando City SC versus Atlanta United clash on Friday.

Unofficially billed the new MLS Derby of the South, a ballsy billboard in downtown Orlando has got everybody talking right now.

Sitting deep in Lions territory on the corner of Washington Street and Garland Avenue, the billboard reads ‘Orlando, we’re coming to conquer’.

Trash talk right on our doorstep? Hmm.

In a move that has clearly been made to pour more fuel on the flames of this blossoming rivalry, we can’t wait to watch how this game series unfolds on the pitch.

The billboard unveiling also comes hot on the heels of a provocative tweet from Atlanta United’s British president Darren Eales too.

Soon to move into their Mercedes-Benz Stadium home in 2018, Eales’ side recently tested their new electronic scoreboards with an Atlanta United 6 Orlando City SC 0 scoreline programmed in.

With Orlando City SC and Atlanta United supporters clashing on social media since The Five Stripes entered Major League Soccer this year, let’s hope the real talking is done on the pitch… and not on a billboard!

Here’s what the Orlando City SC Twittersphere is making of it all.
