“The Running of the Wall” and the re-awakening of Orlando’s fans

It was easy to miss that Wednesday was one of the biggest victories in Orlando sports history.

For whatever reason, MLS, Orlando City and the whole sporting world do very little to publicize the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, a single elimination tournament that features virtually every professional soccer team in the United States.

The Lions were taking on their sister team, NYCFC, at Exploria Stadium for the tournament quarterfinal in front of a general admission crowd.

Tickets for the game are not included in season ticket packages and stadium security did its best to keep fans facing the hard cam to give the appearance of strong attendance.
