ORLANDO, Fla. (Dec. 7, 2018) - Orlando City B will open its United Soccer League (USL) League One season on Saturday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET, when the Club hosts FC Tucson in its 2019 home opener at Montverde Academy.
The match will be the first League One match for both teams, as each side enters the newly established league after previously playing in USL at different levels.
After taking a season off in 2017, OCB returns to USL under the League One structure to serve at the top of Orlando City SC’s player development pyramid, bridging the Academy with the First Team. Tucson, on the other hand, has moved up a division after playing its previous seven seasons in USL-PDL.
Orlando Health returns to OCB as the official medical provider and jersey entitlement sponsor for 2019.
Under the direction of Head Coach Fernando Argila, OCB will play 28 total regular-season matches against nine different opponents in 2019, facing eight opponents three times and one opponent four times. The complete schedule will be announced on Monday, Dec. 10.
