Orlando Pride are the affiliate women’s team belonging to Orlando City SC who completed their inaugural NWSL campaign in 2016.

With club chairman Phil Rawlins announcing the establishment of Orlando Pride at Lake Eola Park in October 2015, the team became the tenth franchise to be added to the National Women’s Soccer League.

Announcing former Australia and United States women’s head coach Tom Sermanni as manager that same month, Orlando Pride played their home fixtures at Camping World Stadium in 2016 but joined Orlando City SC at Orlando City Stadium in 2017.

Breaking the NWSL attendance record for the club’s first ever competitive home game with 23,403 fans applauding a 3-1 victory over Houston Dash in April 2015, Orlando Pride are setting the standard in the women’s game.

With Orlando Pride having also pulled off the marquee signing of USWNT superstar Alex Morgan prior to their inaugural campaign kicking off, the team have already assembled a plethora of fine talents with the likes of Ashlyn Harris, Ali Krieger and the greatest ever women’s footballer Marta, making up a star-studded roster.
