Orlando City SC vs. San Jose Earthquakes
June 18, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Orlando City returns to Major League Soccer (MLS) play on Saturday, June 18, at Camping World Stadium. In light of the tragic events affecting the City of Orlando and its LGBT and Latino communities, the match against the San Jose Earthquakes will be dedicated to bringing our community together to support #OrlandoUnited efforts.
In a joint collaboration across sports teams in Central Florida, MLS’s Orlando City, NWSL’s Orlando Pride, NBA’s Orlando Magic, ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears and AFL’s Orlando Predators are joining forces to sell #OrlandoUnited branded t-shirts with all net proceeds benefiting the City of Orlando’s OneOrlando Fund – OneOrlando.org. For more details on purchasing the t-shirts, please visit http://www.orlandocitysc.com/orlandounited.
In addition, fans can purchase commemorative gameday posters available at the stadium on Saturday for suggested $5 donations and participate in game-worn jersey auctions with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting OneOrlando.org. Further details of the auctions will be announced on the Club’s social media channels.
Aside from the different ways fans can get involved, Orlando City’s game will be fully dedicated to the victims with special patches and t-shirts for players during walkouts, pre-game recognitions of first responders and support service personnel, as well as ticket donations for these groups. A commemorative section of the stadium will be blocked and dedicated to the victims. Orlando City will also stop live play during the game to implement a 30-second moment of silence, a first for MLS.
Orlando City Foundation, the Club’s community arm, has also pledged a $100,000 donation to OneOrlando.org.
In addition, a permanent commemorative memorial will be designed in Section 12 of the Club’s new stadium set to debut in 2017, encompassing rainbow seats representing each victim. The Club will also join as the title sponsor for Orlando Pride Week in October of this year.
