Business After Hours at The Orlando City Soccer Club Home Office


The Central Florida Brazilian American Chamber of Commerce had one more successful Business After Hours, this time hosted by The Orlando City Soccer Club at their home office. Many of CFBACC members and political figures were present honoring the event. The Orlando City Soccer has been a long time member of  CFBACC and has given the Chamber substantial support throughout the years. Brett Lashbrook-Chief Operating Officer, spoke about the impact it will have in the Brazilian Community, in the near future. For starters the new Brazilian  game narrator Marcos Peres, that was a sports correspondent for Globo TV for many years, has already started to make a difference, bringing Brazil to a larger participation and interaction during the games that are transmitted via internet in Portuguese.

The Orlando Lions  Facebook fan page in Brazil has already completed 711.000 Likes, with fans overseas longing to be here and be a part of the revolution. We are also hearing that many soccer stars are coming to town, rumors of Robinho, Kaka’ and these are just some of the names that may come to play in Orlando. Imagine the consequences! It will be amazing!

Soccer is part of Brazilian Culture it is a part of every Brazilian life in many ways, and the Orlando City Soccer has given us the opportunity to feel at home at the games, it has been a great Journey since the beginning and we are glad to be a part of it. The orange bowl is under reconstruction and will be ready to host the games in 2015 until the new stadium gets ready in 2016. The MLS is here, the team is getting ready, and it is here to stay. The CFBACC is proud to have them.

On June 20th, the Brazilian Team Sao Paulo will be in Orlando to play against the Orlando City Soccer Club and will allow many Brazilians to be a part of this great game. Tickets can be purchased at this LINK and the promo code is CFBACC
