ORLANDO, Fla. (September 23, 2016) - Orlando City SC today unveiled Fantober presented by Southern Ford Dealers, declaring October the Club’s Fan Appreciation month as a way to thank fans for their unwavering support. Fantober will include daily prize giveaways, discounts and other surprises and delightful opportunities for Orlando City, Orlando Pride and Orlando City B supporters.


“We wanted to recognize the great support from fans through this season with crucial matches coming up to make a run at the playoffs for the Lions and OCB,” Orlando City SC President and Founder Phil Rawlins said. “October is really a month to thank our fans for always staying behind us and giving us the energy to push through.”


Fantober will offer fans over $11,000 worth in daily prizes, giveaways, discounts from Club partners and unique experiences during October. The grand prize is a 2017 Ford Escape, valued at $25,000, that will be awarded to a fan if the Lions score two goals in the first 10 minutes of the Oct. 23 game against D.C. United.


Additional prizes and opportunities—which include exclusive access to the teams’ activities, gift certificates, partner discounts, seat upgrades and signed memorabilia—will be released weekly during the course of the month.


In order to sign up for the Ford Escape sweepstakes and daily prizes, fans must register here.


Widely known as some of the best supporters in the league, Orlando City fans have demonstrated a passionate following dating back to the Club’s USL days starting in 2011. After setting a U.S. minor league sporting event attendance record with over 20,000 fans in the 2013 USL final, City fans have continued their support in MLS, welcoming over 60,000 fans for consecutive season-opening matches and ranking second in attendance in MLS in consecutive seasons with over 30,000 fans per game, helping the team become the fastest in MLS history to host million fans.


On Saturday evening, Orlando Pride will close out a record-breaking inaugural season in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) when it hosts reigning Champion FC Kansas City at 5 p.m. ET at Camping World Stadium.


With a playoff spot on the line, OCB plays its regular season finale on Sunday, Sept. 25, when it faces Bethlehem Steel FC. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET at Goodman Stadium. The match will be streamed live at www.OrlandoCitySC.com/Live.
