ORLANDO – May 7, 2015 – To encourage fans to rally behind the team, Orlando City Soccer Club has declared Friday #PurpleFriday - a citywide celebration of all things Purple. City fans are being urged to wear purple and attend a celebratory pre-game Happy Hour in three downtown locations with convenient transportation to the stadium.
Businesses can pledge their support by signing up at www.orlandocitysc.com/PurpleFriday. Group discounts are available by calling 855-ORL-CITY.
“With every game we play together, we keep getting closer as a team and this is very important for a young team and Club,” said Orlando City Team Captain Kaká. “Last weekend felt good. Being able to score 3 goals and win the game after being down from an early goal and coming back. It was pure excitement, and the best part— it was in front of our fans. We are excited to put this milestone behind us, and play the soccer we love in the environment that we love.”
Happy Hour is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Harry Buffalo, Elixir and Wall Street Plaza. There will be specials of 2 for 1 Heineken and Bacardi drinks. With kick off set for 8 p.m., shuttles will be available from downtown to the stadium. For transportation information, visit www.orlandocitysc.com/gameday/transportation.
