ORLANDO, Fla. (March 25, 2019) - On April 14, Orlando Pride will kickoff its fourth season in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) with a new force behind them, as the Club has announced the Black Swans Drinking Club as a Recognized Supporter Group (RSG) of the Pride. 

“We are extremely excited to welcome the Black Swans Drinking Club as the newest Recognized Supporters Group for the Orlando Pride,” said Orlando City SC Sr. VP of Marketing and Brand Pedro Araujo. “Their commitment and passion for this club is inspiring, and we are looking forward to working with them to create the game day environment deserving of our world-class players and fans.”

“We’re excited to bring our passion into the stadium to support the Orlando Pride with a game day presence that encourages our team and intimidates our opponents,” the Black Swans said. “We welcome anyone that wants to #TakeTheBlack and be the ‘12th player’ on The Wall.”
