Orlando City Soccer has done it – they've sold out their first game as an MLS team, which means that if you don't already have your ticket to the March 8 game, you're probably out of luck (unless you want to buy season tickets – there are still a limited number
of those left). But you can still show your purple pride (and get swept away in some of the revelry) during the next few days as Orlando gears up for game day:
At 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, there will be a Purple Pride 5k
where you can “march to the match” through Downtown Orlando. Online ignups for the race are now closed, but you can still go cheer on your purple runners.
Gather around the Lake Eola Amphitheater at 6:30 p.m. on March 6 for Soccer Under the Stars
, a family event with food trucks, games, popcorn and a free screening of Kicking and Screaming
Finally, on Saturday, March 7 a Guinness World Record will be broken in Downtown Orlando as Orlando City Soccer Club and fans attempt the World’s Largest Pub Crawl
at downtown’s official Orlando City Soccer pubs (Wall Street Plaza, Elixir and Harry Buffalo). For $25, you get a ticket voucher to the first game of the season, three Heineken beers and admission to the crawl.
On game day, you can catch the game, which starts at 5 p.m., on ESPN2.
