Orlando City Soccer has brought excitement to hundreds of thousands of fans since the club joined the MLS in 2015. The city embraced the team instantly, bringing over 60,000 fans for the first match in the Citrus Bowl. Today, the experience has changed dramatically since that first game. The brand-new Orlando City Stadium is only one of the best venues for watching soccer in the country, with notable design features that enhance the spectator experience and honor the Orlando community.
A Soccer Fan’s Dream
One of the best parts about watching Orlando City play live is that there truly is not a bad seat in the house. Whether you sit at field-level or in the upper deck, at midfield or behind the goals, the stadium was designed to create the best view for every patron. It is an intimate stadium, so there’s no “nosebleed” seats or partially obstructed views. In fact, there are unique benefits to sitting in each area of the stadium. Appreciate the speed, strength, and technique of the players when you sit in the lower bowl, or observe the tactics and shape of the teams from higher up.
Orlando City games aren’t just for soccer-heads. The team is often (somewhat affectionately) called the “cardiac cats” because their games often come down to the wire with last-second goals and crazy situations. Our stadium is also known for being one of the best in-game fan experiences in the MLS with constant singing, chanting, and cheering. The atmosphere is truly electric. Wherever your family ends up, the excitement of the game and athleticism of the players will wow everyone.
Fun for Everyone
Though stadium food isn’t normally considered to be great, the new stadium denies these expectations with gameday favorites, healthy options, and gourmet selections. On the first level, grab a Cuban bowl at Esta Noche or tacos at Casa Del Sol. Score some club-level seats and you are in for a real treat. The West Club features a delicious assortment of complimentary premium food options like teriyaki pork tenderloin, chicken green chili flautas, vegetable baked ziti, fruits and vegetables, and deserts along with complimentary beer, wine, soda, and water.
Before the game, be sure to show up a couple hours early to check out the FanZone right outside the stadium on Church Street. There, you will be able to grab drinks and snacks and listen to a live DJ while the kids have fun playing games and participating in activities perfect for them. The buzz around the stadium pre-game will also get everyone even more excited for the match.
