Who We Are
Our coverage starts with Orlando City Soccer Club of MLS. The Orlando Pride of the NWSL, and the seeds of the Academy which powers the whole club.
Founded in 2014 by Mike Gramajo, The OSJ started as a soccer blog, but gradually evolved into a platform documenting the growing soccer scene in Central Florida.
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.
