Orlando church fighting MLS stadium land suit

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — An Orlando church plans to fight eminent domain proceedings filed by the city as it tries to secure land it needs to build a new downtown Major League Soccer stadium.

Faith Deliverance Temple pastor Kinsey Shack says in a news release that the church does not want to sell its property, which sits in the middle of the planned development for a $100 million stadium to house Orlando's MLS team.

The city filed its complaint in May saying securing the parcel is necessary and benefits the entire city. It's offered the church as much as $4 million for its land, but the church has declined.

Orlando City SC will play its first MLS season in 2015 in the Florida Citrus Bowl. It plans to open the new stadium in 2016.
