Orlando City announced that they are breaking ground on their new soccer specific stadium in a few weeks on October 16th at 5:00pm. County Commissioner Ted Edwards and radio personality Bud Hedinger will probably not be there as their Cheerios were ruined, RUINED, by soccer becoming popular in Central Florida and it is rumored that foreigners may be in the vicinity.
The groundbreaking will take place at the Northwest Corner of the Church Street and Parramore intersection and will feature club and city officials as well as Orlando City players.
Though the club has not released all the details of the event, it will be opened to the public and fans are encouraged to attend.
“October 16 will be a landmark day for the community of Parramore, the City of Orlando, Orange County, our fans and our Club,” said Orlando City President and Founder Phil Rawlins. “We look forward to hosting an unforgettable, festive celebration to mark the ceremonial start of construction of what will be the best soccer stadium in the league.”
This probably means that there will be bushels and bushels of cream and purple and white balloons and scarves.
The 20,000 seat stadium will be the home of Orlando City from 2016 onwards and will include state of the art amenities as well as unique aspects like a giant lion sitting on a turn table. This has already been rated as Infinitely Cool® by crack TCBG staff.
More news to come as the purple phone brings it.
