About us



We do this for the love of the game. While we’re credentialed to cover these teams, the OSJ is runned by journalism students from the University of Central Florida and Valencia College.

Apart from working our way through college, and going to-and-from places, it adds up at our own cost. The Orlando Soccer Journal is now on Patreon, so if you’re enjoying our independent coverage of Orlando City, Pride and OCB, please consider becoming a patron by clicking here. 

Who We Are 

Our coverage starts with Orlando City Soccer Club of MLS. The Orlando Pride of the NWSL and Orlando City B of the USL.

Founded in 2012 by Orlando-based soccer writer Mike Gramajo, The OSJ started as a small soccer blog, but gradually evolved into a voice across the Orlando soccer scene.

The OSJ explores and tells the compelling Orlando City story by pundits of the soccer movement in Orlando. It’s here where the City Beautiful meets The Beautiful Game.
