various times through March 3 ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Walt Disney World Resort Lake Buena Vista 800-745-3000 $15.50-$69 Last month, we covered the hype surrounding Orlando City Soccer Club’s second season, with team owner Phil Rawlins calling to arms Lions fans’ support of this weekend’s Pro Soccer Classic. Expectations are high, as our hometown United Soccer League club represents Orlando in the weeklong tournament against six Major League Soccer teams, hailing from all over the country, Canada and Sweden. The Lions’ success serves as a major stepping-stone towards an MLS home in Orlando, so we’ll be on the edge of our seats looking for some aggressive play and, hopefully, a crowd of loud-and-proud Orlando City ultras shouting “Goooooaaal!” – Aimee Vitek
