Orlando City and UCF to host 2016 and 2017 NCAA Women’s College Cup; three more added to 2014 Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic
Yesterday, Orlando City and the Central Florida Sports Commission announced that the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Women’s College Cup final fours will be played in Orlando, at Orlando City’s in-development soccer-specific stadium.
UCF will serve as the college host for both tournaments. This is the tip of the iceberg for the potential of the stadium beyond hosting Orlando City’s league games.
The CFSC also announced that Orlando will host several NCAA finals in golf and tennis in 2016-2018. Rollins will host the 2016 men’s and women’s D-II tennis finals. The Sunshine State Conference will host the men’s D-II golf finals in 2017, and regional tournament action in 2016. Oglethorpe University (even though they’re based in Atlanta) will host D-III golf tournaments here for the men in 2017, and the women in 2018.
Three more teams have been announced for the 2014 Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic.
Previously, Orlando City and Montreal Impact had signed on to return. Yesterday, Sporting Kansas City, Philadelphia Union and Columbus Crew were signed to return.
The 2014 tournament will run from February 19 through March 1. A more exact schedule is forthcoming once the remaining three teams are added.
