Orlando City rolled out the bling in a big way to celebrate the club's first MLS trophy.
The club unveiled its 2022 U.S. Open Cup championship ring, which was handed out to players and staff in a special private ceremony on Monday night at Exploria Stadium. The Lions won six matches in their run to the Cup crown, concluding with a home victory over USL side Sacramento Republic on Sept. 7.
The ring's several unique features include 118 stones adorning the top along with a nod to "The Wall" supporters section, the player's name and number, and more.
Here's a closer look at all of the details that make up the one-of-a-kind tribute to that magical run:
