After over a decade without an MLS team, Orlando City SC joined the league in 2015 after five seasons as a second-level team. The team played its first two MLS seasons at the venue now known as Camping World Stadium before opening Orlando City Stadium in 2017. Meanwhile, a Major League Soccer expansion team led by David Beckham is under development.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies of the original North American Soccer League was the area’s first major sports franchise, beginning play in 1975. The Rowdies were an immediate success, drawing good crowds and winning Soccer Bowl ’75 in their first season to bring Tampa its first professional sports championship.

The Tampa Bay Mutiny were the first MLS club to win the Supporters’ Shield in the league’s history. The club operated from 1996 until 2001. The Miami Fusion played in MLS from 1998 to 2001, winning the Supporters’ Shield in their last season.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies, founded in 2008 as F.C. Tampa Bay, currently play in the United Soccer League, joining the league after leaving the North American Soccer League in 2016. In this time, they’ve won one championship in the 2012 North American Soccer League season.

In 2016, the Orlando Pride, operated by Orlando City, began play in the National Women’s Soccer League. They have played at the same venue as their parent club throughout their history–Camping World Stadium in 2016 and Orlando City Stadium ever since.
