MIAMI - British owned U.S. second division
club Austin Aztex will move cities from their Texas home to
Orlando, Florida, the club said in a statement on Monday.
The Aztex franchise was founded in 2008 by Phil Rawlins, a
British-born businessman who is also a director at English
Premier League club Stoke City.
The move is part of a sale of the club to a new UK
consortium who will put the team in the third tier, USL Pro

to invest alongside us and who believed in this market," said
Rawlins in a statement.
Head coach Adrian Heath, a former Stoke and Everton striker,
and all the retained players will move with the team, said the
