ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando City Soccer Club says it's reinstating one of the fan groups it suspended earlier this month following an incident in Tampa but banning 15 other fans for conduct at a recent home match.

Lions president Phil Rawlins announced the decision to reinstate The Ruckus fan group in a letter to fans Monday, updating ongoing efforts to improve conduct at games.

The letter says that four fans are being banned for Orlando City matches until December 2015 for failing to comply with Major League Soccer's new fan code of conduct during a July 12 game. Eleven other fans are being banned until after the 2015 MLS All-Star game.

The team is also inviting fans to join a new fan advisory council consisting of representatives from the team's fan base.
