Orlando City SC Communications

ORLANDO, Fla. (July 18, 2018) – Orlando City SC has reinstated the Atlanta United FC organized supporter groups’ privileges at Orlando City Stadium after Atlanta United FC identified and banned the fans that threw objects onto the pitch on May 13.

In a continued effort to foster a passionate, healthy rivalry, Orlando City’s organized supporter groups’ privileges at Mercedes-Benz Stadium have also been reinstated. Both clubs agree that with this mutual goodwill, our supporters will continue to make our stadiums the most exciting in MLS while maintaining safe environments.

About Orlando City SC:

Orlando City SC joined Major League Soccer (MLS) as the league’s 21st franchise in November 2013, becoming the first MLS team in the Southeast. The Lions began league play in March 2015 and moved into their privately-financed downtown soccer venue in March 2017, becoming the first team in MLS history to open a stadium with five consecutive victories. With a season-ticket base in the 20,000 range, the 25,500-seated Orlando City Stadium experienced sellout crowds nearly its entire first year of inception.

In November 2015, the Club announced its intention to bring professional women’s soccer to Central Florida and launched Orlando Pride in National Women’s Soccer League. The Pride began league play in April 2016 with a star-studded team of FIFA World Cup Champions.
