Orlando City wraps up its preseason tonight by travelling to Tampa to play USF‘s men’s soccer team.
The match is at 7pm at Corbett Soccer Stadium on the University of South Florida campus. From I-4, exit at I-75 northbound, then take that to the next exit, Fowler Ave., exiting to go westbound. Go down to turn right on Bull Run Drive (MOSI will be on the left at that intersection), then turn left at Elm Drive to get to parking. Admission and parking are free, and concessions will be available on-site.
Corbett Soccer Stadium opened this past season, the team moving from a track to a 2,000-seat soccer-specific stadium, and hosted a few legs of the NCAA D-I men’s soccer tournament. The stadium is named for Cornelia Corbett, the owner of the original Tampa Bay Rowdies from the late 1970s and 1980s, and features displays with Rowdies memorabilia.
The only thing that won’t be there, unlike last year when the Lions travelled to University of Tampa, is Ralph’s Mob. They’ll be busy in suburban (sic) Lakeland for a preseason match between the Rowdies and Fort Lauderdale Strikers.
