IMG_0314

Season Tickets Sold Out

It was announced earlier in the week that all 18,000 season tickets for the 2016 campaign, have been sold out. Earlier this summer, the club announced new plans for a larger downtown stadium, and with it an increase in the season ticket allotment from 14,000 to 18,000. For those that missed out this round, the club has a new waiting list. It’s only $75.00 per seat to hold your spot in line. For more information, visit Orlando City SC .

 

World Cup Champs Coming to Orlando

The US Women’s National Team will be in Orlando on October 25th for a match against Brazil. This match will be the final stop of their World Cup Victory Tour. Tickets go on sale September 1st and are available through ussoccer.com. Make sure you act fast because this is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town!

 

Inaugural Growing Pains

To say the past couple of months have been a disappointment for the Lions, would be the understatement of the year. With just one win in their last 9 matches, hopes of making the playoffs are beginning to fade. In the last four matches, the lions have managed to score just one goal, while giving up thirteen. It also doesn’t help that Orlando City have seen more red cards (9) than any other club in Major League Soccer (MLS) this year. Sometimes the ejections are valid, but many times inconsistent officiating is to blame. This is not just a Orlando City problem, but a league wide problem. Major League Soccer has been plagued by officiating woes all season. My hope is there is a serious review this off-season regarding the quality of referees the league employs. With that said, the boys in purple are not mathematically out of the playoff race just yet. Is it time to start reaching for the panic button? Yes.
