The city of Orlando has renewed its partnership with Orlando Health, incorporating new features into the longest corporate partnership in the club’s history.
Alex Leitao, Orlando City’s CEO, said “we are thrilled to be able to continue our long-standing partnership with Orlando Health.”
The partnership between Orlando Health and Orlando City, which has persisted for many years, began when the team played in the United Soccer League, during which time Orlando Health served as the Lions and Pride kit sponsor.
This new agreement includes naming rights to the training facilities of both The Pride and The Lions. The Pride train at Sylvan Lake Park and The Lions train at Osceola Heritage Park; with The Lions’ facility including two extra large fields for the Orlando City academy.
Additionally, the updated agreement includes
a Orlando Health’s longstanding medical partnership, continuing their position as the provider for every team.
The agreement also includes new community outreach initiatives targeted throughout Orlando. For instance, a “Winning Women” panel will feature Orlando Pride players and will promote women’s empowerment. On top of that, the teams will partner with Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children during Kick Childhood Cancer Month and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Andy Gardiner, senior VP of external affairs and community relations at Orlando Health, said “We’re excited to see what the future brings for our growing partnership!”
