Sell out the Orlando Citrus Bowl on March 8th, sell 14,000 season tickets and meet certain sponsorship goals. This was the challenge Orlando City SC President and Founder Phil Rawlins made to the team's front office at the beginning of the season. The Reward? An all-expenses paid trip to Chicago to watch the Lions take on the Fire. The staff promptly delivered and this past weekend, so did Phil.
The Orlando City front office headed to Chicago 70 strong this past Friday.
Don't get caught sleeping on the plane with 70 of your friends around.
We arrived in a rainy Chicago, so naturally everyone took to social media.
Stuck in rush hour traffic, the two Orlando City buses exchanged dueling photos.
Next up, an open bar and a night out on the town.
Before the match on Saturday, the staff split up to explore the city
The staff then headed to dinner before grabbing a bus to the match.
Love the fact that you can hear our supporters #LionsInChicago— Gisselle☀∞ (@GisselleG29) September 20, 2015
The three points were the perfect ending to the trip. The staff jumped on a plane early Sunday morning to head back to Orlando.
