ORLANDO – February 2, 2015 – Just over a week ago, Orlando City Soccer Club celebrated a major milestone by recognizing 13-time Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Ken Griffey Jr. as the Club's 10,000th Central Florida resident to purchase season tickets. That celebration was brief as the front office staff returned to work and today, the Lions announced they have surpassed 11,000 season tickets for the inaugural 2015 Major League Soccer (MLS) campaign.
Thus far, Section 132 of the Orlando Citrus Bowl has completely sold out, while several sections including the Club and Midfield East are nearing sellout capacity.
Orlando City will host fellow MLS debutants New York City FC Sunday, March 8 at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. Kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. ET. Season tickets are available for purchase at www.OrlandoCitySC.com or by calling 855-ORL-CITY. Season Ticket Members enjoy a number of benefits including membership in Society XXI and priority for 2016 Season Tickets in the new stadium.
"The rapid increase in sales shows the growing demand of our passionate fans as the home opener rapidly approaches," said Orlando City Founder and President Phil Rawlins. "To be only a few thousand tickets from our goal several weeks before the start of the season further validates why Orlando is the 'Soccer Capital of the South.' We look forward to celebrating our march toward March 8th with our fans and can't wait to hear the roar of the stadium when the first whistle blows and we make history for the City Beautiful."
