I don't know if it's sunk in for Orlando City fans yet, but the Lions will be participating in the Concacaf Champions League for the first time ever next season. That is a big damn deal for a club of this stature and an incredible opportunity to gain experience on the international level.

Orlando probably doesn't have the roster to make a run in CCL, but the experience of playing early games against the best of Central America and the Caribbean is an extremely unique and awesome experience.

Sometimes CCL can be a hinderance on a team's early season form, but the opportunity to play on the continent's biggest stage is always something to look forward to and celebrate.
