New Orlando City SC jerseys will pay tribute to shooting victims
Orlando City SC has unveiled the special jerseys the team will wear in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting this past week.
The new jersey will have a patch on the chest featuring a rainbow heart, with the words “Orlando United” written under the heart.
A lone gunman killed 49 people at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, and left more than 50 others injured. The shooting was the worst terror attack on American soil since September 11 and the deadliest mass shooting in the country’s history.
Orlando City will wear the jerseys during its Saturday game against the San Jose Earthquakes as part of a larger initiative to pay tribute to the victims.
The team has also donated tickets to firefighters who can attend Saturday’s game. Proceeds from posters sold on the team website will be donated to a local charity.
