Updated April 16, 2021
In Orlando, fans of FIFA, Major League Soccer (MLS) and European football never have to miss a second of the action. Many Orlando-area restaurants, bars, hotels and even shopping malls televise important matches, and most of them on giant HDTVs complemented by mouthwatering food and drink options. That’s on top of live games from MLS’ Orlando City Soccer Club and NWSL’s Orlando City Pride, plus special soccer events at their home field, Exploria Stadium in downtown Orlando.
Best of all, you can visit these venues with confidence thanks to enhanced health and safety measures designed to protect you. In other words: GOAL!
