ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 14, 2023) — Today, Orlando City SC and the Orlando Pride announced a multi-year partnership with Inter&Co to become the Official Financial Institution of both the Major League Soccer and National Women’s Soccer League clubs.
"We are excited to welcome Inter&Co and their 28 million customers to the Orlando City and Orlando Pride family as our newest partner," said Club President of Business Operations Jarrod Dillon. "We look forward to sharing Inter&Co’s innovative capabilities in the digital financial space with our fans, and partnering with them to make an impact in our community. The global synergies that exist between our two brands are evident and we look forward to building on their storied history in the sport of soccer.”
“Orlando is one of the fastest-growing markets which can benefit from the exact financial products and solutions we've developed,” said João Vitor Menin, CEO of Inter&Co Inc. “We’re thrilled to partner with Orlando City SC and Pride to introduce Inter&Co to the fans and citizens of Orlando. This partnership is more than a collaboration; it's a testament to our international expansion efforts, our mission to simplify the lives of millions of users, and our commitment to serving diverse communities through our all-in-one Super App.”
In Brazil, Inter, which is part of Inter&Co (NASDAQ: INTR), offers a range of financial solutions and digital commerce services to more than 28 million customers. In the United States, Inter&Co offers international remittance services to more than 60 countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia, as well as accounts transfers, gift cards, bill payments and debit cards.
Fans will be able to learn more about Inter&Co beginning with the Lions’ Sept. 16 match, with more information available in the Mane Street Plaza Fan Zone presented by Publix and near Section 30 in the concourse.
The partnership marks one of the most substantial recent investments by a financial institution that is part of a Latin American-based conglomerate in a Major League Soccer or National Women’s Soccer League team. This significant step for Inter&Co bolsters the company’s international expansion efforts, with more collaborative offerings with Orlando City SC and Orlando Pride to come on the horizon. The partnership, which includes the banking, credit card, remittance and mortgage categories, was celebrated Thursday afternoon at Exploria Stadium in an event that included the Club’s front office, Inter&Co representatives, Brazilian players from both City and Pride, prominent members of the Orlando business community and additional Club partners.
The deal marks Inter&Co’s first with an NWSL organization and second in MLS, with the company boasting additional partnerships across the global soccer landscape, including Brazil-based clubs São Paulo FC and Athletico Paranaense.
