Orlando City B are the affiliate men’s team belonging to Orlando City SC who completed their inaugural USL season in 2016, reaching the playoffs at the first attempt.

Coming to existence back in June 2015 with Orlando City SC announcing their intentions to replace their existing Louisville City FC affiliation, former Lions star Anthony Pulis was officially unveiled as the first ever OCB head coach in October 2015.

During the club’s first ever press conference, OCB announced that 2016 home fixtures would be based out of Titan Soccer Complex in Melbourne, Brevard County but the team currently shares Orlando City Stadium in 2017.

With the club serving to not only achieve their own glory in USL just like the original Orlando City SC organisation, OCB exists to exchange players between both clubs, allowing for greater first team opportunities for younger professionals while carrying on the Lions’ legacy in the division that paved the way for our current first team to thrive!
