In January 2015 it was reported that Orlando City SC would be signing Rivas for a $1.5 million fee along with his Deportivo Cali teammate Cristian Higuita. He was chosen as their third Designated Player after Kaká and Bryan Róchez, and made his debut at the latter's expense on 8 March in their first MLS game, a 1–1 home draw against fellow newcomers New York City FC. He was picked as the best Orlando player and second best player overall for that match by the league's website.
