VSI Tampa Bay FC tickets finally available; Fifth Third Bank buys field naming rights; Zusi-Chin feature on the Sentinel
VSI Tampa Bay FC has finally opened ticket sales for its USL Pro team.
Tickets are available for Orlando City’s road match against VSI on Sunday, August 4. Game time is 7pm.
They have their own home-brewed online ticketing system. The only additional fee is apparently Hillsborough County’s 7% sales tax.
No word on where they’re playing yet, however.
Fifth Third Bank has bought naming rights at the Citrus Bowl for Orlando City soccer games. The field will now be called “Fifth Third Bank Field at the Citrus Bowl”.
The article mentions offhand that Orlando City has an 86% season ticket retention rate. Considering we had 3,500 season tickets last year, that’s an attrition of less than 500, not including new accounts or account expansions. I’d say that’s pretty good.
And the Orlando Sentinel has an article on Graham Zusi and Dennis Chin meeting at the Pro Soccer Classic. Chin, one of Orlando City’s starting forwards, and Zusi, a national team midfielder for Sporting Kansas City, were rivals in high school here. Chin played for Oviedo High, while Zusi played for Lake Brantley High. Both played for the Central Florida Kraze under Joe Avallone while Zusi was at Maryland and Chin was at Rollins.
