We Painted Orlando Purple

Last updated on September 15, 2022

On Orlando City home match days (or nights), there is a special energy in downtown. The restaurants, streets, and bars are filled with purple shirts and cheering fans. The lights around downtown Orlando are purple. The vibe and spirit of Orlando is unforgettable on these days, especially on September 7, the day of the U.S. Open Cup.  

The U.S. Open Cup is the oldest soccer tournament in the nation, dating back to 1913. On September 7, 25,000+ fans packed Exploria Stadium for Orlando City’s victory against Sacramento Republic. This is Orlando City’s first ever trophy since their MLS journey began in 2015.  

This win was a sign of what Orlando City and Orlando can achieve together. We are excited to support the Lions for the rest of their MLS season. Vamos Orlando!
