Who We Are
Our coverage starts with Orlando City Soccer Club of MLS. The Orlando Pride of the NWSL and Orlando City B of USL League One.
Created in 2012 by Orlando-based soccer writer Mike Gramajo, The OSJ started as a small soccer blog, but gradually evolved into a voice across the Orlando soccer scene.
The OSJ explores and tells the compelling Orlando City story by pundits of the soccer movement in Orlando. It’s here where the City Beautiful meets The Beautiful Game.
