4. Tampa Bay Rowdies

I want this rivalry to fly up this list, and to many it already belongs higher up. With the Open Cup's regional system and the growth of the Rowdies in the USL Championship, I think this could be Orlando's second best rivalry in a few years.

As it stands, the I-4 Derby is an exciting idea and fun Twitter beef, but not much of an actual soccer rivalry. Hopefully Wednesday will create some history on that front and light the match for a unique Florida soccer series.
