The Orlando City soccer team has added a patch on their jerseys to show support after the Pulse nightclub shooting.

On the jerseys, in between their lions logos and the Adidas logo, there is a now a patch that reads Orlando United with a rainbow colored heart.



The jersey change comes just in time for their upcoming game on Saturday, June 18, against the San Jose Earthquakes.

The club is also selling posters, which look nearly identical to the jersey's patch, for this weekend's game.



All of the proceeds will go to the OneOrlando Fund. You can purchase at the stadium or online for $5. 

The team is also selling Orlando United shirts at their pop-up shop at Wall St. Plaza today, June 17.
