Orlando City Soccer Club has scheduled a news conference at 2pm today with long time shirt sponsor Orlando Health. The buzz seems to be that this is going to be an announcement about extending the shirt sponsor agreement until 2016. There is the off chance though that we could be looking at a stadium-naming rights deal. Orlando City as part of their negotiation with the City of Orlando retains naming rights to the upcoming soccer specific stadium even though the city will own the venue. Check back here later on today for full details.
Thanks for stopping by! This is a place for all Orlando soccer fans, and specifically Orlando City Soccer Club fans. I have no other qualifications than the following:
• I was born and raised and reside in Orlando.
• I’ve been to a Lions game.
• I’m familiar with the whole literacy thing.
I will search to the ends of the Internet to bring you every tidbit of info about the Lions as well as fun articles relating to the best soccer team in the land. You can find game threads here as well as match recaps and (hopefully) informed opinion pieces. It’s about time that The City Beautiful had a blog about The Beautiful Game!
