Fret not City fans – Orlando City Soccer Club announced that over 2,000 standing room only tickets on the Orlando Citrus Bowl’s North Plaza have been released for the historic home opener against fellow league newcomers New York City FC.
The standing room only tickets will be released via www.ticketmaster.com and sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The inaugural match will take place on March 8, 2015. Kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
All seats except for a limited number held for season ticket sales have been sold for the March 8 match. Fans interested in purchasing season tickets can visit www.OrlandoCitySC.com or call 855-ORL-CITY.
“Based on the over-whelming demand from our fans to attend this match, we are thrilled to be able and extend a special standing room only ticket for what will be a historic event for our Club,” said Club President and Founder Phil Rawlins. “We know there are thousands of fans who greatly desire to watch the Lions take the field on March 8, and we look forward to seeing them all there!”
Orlando City will host several events leading up to its inaugural match on March 8. As noted earlier, due to the sellout of seats, admission to these events no longer includes a ticket to the historic first game. More information is available at www.OrlandoCitySC.com/FillTheBowl.
