Orlando Pride announces promotional calendar for 2023 regular season


ORLANDO, Fla. (May 3, 2023) -- Orlando Pride has announced its promotional calendar for the 2023 NWSL regular season, with the Club offering six theme nights for fans at Exploria Stadium, and at least one theme night planned each month for the remainder of the season.

The first theme night is set to be the return of the popular Pups of Pride night on Saturday, May 20 against the Washington Spirit, with fans able to bring their canine companions to Exploria Stadium for the evening.

The Pride will turn back the clock as they host Decades Night on Friday, July 7 before welcoming the San Diego Wave for the first-ever Star Wars Night on Saturday, Aug. 25 and Noche Latina against the North Carolina Courage on Sunday, Sept. 17.

The Pride will round out their 2023 regular season by welcoming space-race rival Houston Dash to Exploria Stadium in what will serve as the Club’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness match during Breast Cancer Awareness month on Oct. 15.
