8/21 @ Charlotte FC, 7 p.m. ESPN+

Orlando's first ever trip to what could be a bottom five stadium in MLS. Call it harsh, but every turf-field football stadium is near the bottom, no exceptions. Charlotte FC has a ton of potential, but early returns are far from promising. A 1-0 loss to the Charleston Battery in preseason, a failed transfer for a big DP and the head coach literally saying "we're (screwed)" in a press conference does not inspire much confidence. Maybe by August this team will be fully fleshed out and approaching the postseason goals the club set for itself.
