Just in time to capitalize on the world’s most-watched sporting event, the Orlando City Lions have opened season ticket sales for the new Major League Soccer franchise.
To see if World Cup frenzy means more fans for Orlando’s team, 90.7’s Amy Kiley stopped by The Celt Irish Pub downtown last weekend. It’s home to soccer fans year-round, and, during this weekend’s World Cup matches, it was packed.
She spoke with viewers Alex Brunck, Ryan Davis, Ha’ani, Rachel Jones, Ian Walters to see if World Cup fever would get them to Lions games.
