Pride Seattle Preview

After Record-Setting Home Opener, Pride Returns to Orlando to Host Seattle on Sunday

ORLANDO, Fla. (May 6, 2016) – After its second road match of the season, Orlando Pride will return home when it hosts Seattle Reign FC at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday at Camping World Stadium, formerly known as the Orlando Citrus Bowl. The Pride’s last match at home was one for the record books, as the Club not only picked up its first-ever win – a 3-1 victory over the Houston Dash – but saw 23,403 supporters pack the stands to set a new National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) single-game attendance record.

Tickets for the home match are available at orlando-pride.com or by calling 855-ORL-CITY. Season tickets are available for just $15 a game and can be purchased at orlando-pride.com/tickets.

The match will also be streamed live on orlando-pride.com/live.

The Pride enter Sunday’s match looking to rebound from a 1-0 loss at Chicago on May 1, after Christen Press’ 65th minute score proved to be the game-winner. Orlando held the majority of possession in the cold-weather match but was unable to convert its chances and beat Alyssa Naeher.

Pride goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris was, again, a standout for her team on the pitch, making five saves to keep the Club within striking distance. One of those stops, a 79th minute diving save, would go on to earn Harris back-to-back Save of the Week honors.

Seattle, the defending NWSL Shield Winners, comes into the match riding a two-match winning streak, spurred by the contributions of back-to-back NWSL Player of the Week Kim Little.

Last week, Little scored the game’s lone goal to give the Reign a 1-0 victory over 2015 Champion FC Kansas City. The week prior, she was key to her club’s 3-0 win over Boston, having a hand in all tallies with a goal and two assists.

Sunday’s match at the newly dubbed Camping World Stadium will feature a battle of two of the world’s best goalkeepers, as Harris will matchup between the pipes with U.S. Women’s National Team counterpart Hope Solo.

The game will be the first of a two-game home stand for the Pride, who next host the Western New York Flash on Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Camping World Stadium.
