I’m excited to announce the revival of the Orlando Soccer Journal for the 2016 Major League Soccer, National Women’s Soccer League and United Soccer League seasons.
Thank you to those who have been following me since the moment I started covering the Orlando soccer scene in 2012.
Coverage on all Florida professional soccer teams will be added to the new website with a new series called “Around the State.” The series will feature briefs on the North American Soccer League’s Tampa Bay Rowdies, Fort Lauderdale Strikers, Jacksonville Armada and Miami FC.
Other sets of series include “Around the City,” which will contain briefs on Orlando City SC, Orlando Pride and Orlando City B.
With these series, I can assure that not only Orlando soccer fans will have the latest soccer news, but all Florida soccer fans will have similar coverage.
The OSJ also plans to add contributing writers to help with coverage on Orlando’s three teams. To further the coverage, I have set a budget to travel to at least four MLS markets during the regular season to cover Orlando City road games.
For those that have enjoyed my coverage on Orlando City–whether it has been on SBI Soccer or other media outlets–please consider donating on our “Donate” page. All proceeds go toward covering travel expenses for our staff. Even if you’re only willing to donate $1, our team would appreciate it. As the old saying goes, “Every penny counts.”
My goal is to raise $1,000, which will help the OSJ staff bring the best away-match coverage.
