Orlando City owner might sell club by 2022

Da Silva, who paid $70m to take Orlando City from USL to MLS before the 2015 season, sold a 8.63% stake in the team to Albert Friedberg, last year for $42m. Da Silva is the majority owner of the MLS club, as well as its sister NWSL club the Orlando Pride and Orlando City Stadium.
