Orlando City’s Kickoff Week will provide fans with opportunities to visit the Club’s new stadium; witness a unique faceoff between Orlando City SC, Orlando Pride and Orlando City B players and 100 kids, the funds of which will benefit the Orlando City Foundation; and the Club’s annual Purple Pride 5K and Pub Crawl.
