Orlando City B to Face Inter Miami CF II at IMG Academy


ORLANDO, Fla. (March 28, 2024) – MLS NEXT Pro today announced that the April 2 match between Orlando City B (1-0-1, 5 points) and Inter Miami CF II (1-0-1, 4 points) will be played as a part of the 2024 Generation adidas Cup at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Generation adidas Cup is the premier international youth soccer tournament hosted by Major League Soccer and MLS NEXT and teams participating in the tournament, and their families, have been invited to attend the MLS NEXT Pro match.

Fans can stream the match for free on MLSNEXTPro.com, with the ability to choose from four different languages. In addition to the usual English language broadcast, for the first time ever fans will also be able to hear an MLS NEXT Pro match in French, Spanish and Portuguese, through the power of artificial intelligence.

As part of the recently-launched MLS Innovation Lab, MLS NEXT Pro will partner with Camb.AI - an AI dubbing platform that instantaneously translates content into any language, all while maintaining the native speakers voice and tone – to offer the first-ever live sporting event to be broadcast simultaneously in multiple languages using artificial intelligence.  

MLS NEXT Pro is also working with two other companies from MLS Innovation Lab’s initial cohort to test their capabilities at the April 2 match:  

  • Fitogether: A FIFA Preferred Provider for Wearable Player Tracking, will provide vests to both team's players to wear during the match, leveraging its technology that uses GPS to track on-field performance through a video hybrid system. This technology specifically caters to professional and academy levels. 
  • STAIDIUM U.S.: Will trial their AI-powered and 5G-enabled camera to offer a live stream and automated broadcast production of the match. Leveraging an OTT platform, the live stream will feature highlights and advanced game and player analytics. 

The Lions will look to stay undefeated in their 2024 MLS NEXT Pro campaign after a win over Atlanta United 2 on opening weekend and a draw at Huntsville City FC, in which OCB took the extra point via the end-of-regulation shootout.
