Why is Orlando City Stadium (or as Bianchi likes to call it, "The Purple Palace") such a home-pitch advantage?
1. Its construction. It holds a fraction of the fans the Citrus Bowl does, but it is twice as loud.
2. The team. It is amazing how much bigger home field advantage seems with a good squad.
3. I-4. Spending five minutes on that jumbled mess sends opponents into a downward spiral of despair and depression.
4. The Wall. The passion that comes from following a team as it rises through the ranks is unparalleled.
