TAMPA, Fla. – Join us for live coverage of the 2023 USL Academy League Playoffs Final as the Charlotte Independence and Orange County SC each take aim at lifting the trophy at the Tournament Sportsplex of Tampa Bay. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. ET.

The Independence have lost only once in the regular season and playoffs, and defeated San Antonio FC 3-1 in Saturday’s Semifinals behind goals from Joshua Moore, Liam Condon and Ryan Seitz. Led by Head Coach Jeff Bilyk, Charlotte will be aiming to go one better than their First Team counterparts, which advance to the 2023 USL League One Final only to fall in a penalty shootout in November.

Orange County reached the tournament after a midseason rally that saw the side reel off five consecutive victories to win its division after at one point being 3-4-0 in the regular season. Led by Head Coach Didier Crettenand, OCSC took a 2-0 victory against AC Connecticut in the Semifinals, and features United States U-17 international Bryce Jamison, one of six players in the squad that saw action in the past USL Championship campaign.
