ORLANDO, Fla. (May 20, 2022) – The Orlando Pride has announced the continuation of the Mission Program, which was started last year as part of the Club’s campaign to honor and pay tribute to the many pioneers who have made groundbreaking contributions in our society.
This year’s Mission Program will feature four designated games, focused on promoting the greater good. Those missions are: Mission Planet Earth, Mission Rainbow, Mission Inclusion and Mission W. Like last year, the Club will hold auctions throughout the year to raise money for the Mission Fund, with proceeds going to non-profit organizations personally selected by the Pride players.
Additionally, the Club has announced the complete theme night schedule for the remainder of the 2022 regular season. These theme nights are inspired by the achievements of the people and organizations who continue to inspire the next generation. The themes of each of these matches will be centered around the interests that are pivotal to the fabric of the Pride, the Club and the greater Orlando community.
The complete 2022 theme night schedule can be found below.
Fans attending the matches will have the opportunity to purchase specialty merchandise items, such as t-shirts, CITYiD patches and unique jersey customizations, specialty apparel collections and more. Tickets for all Pride home games can be purchased at Orlando-Pride.com/tickets or by calling (855) ORL-CITY.
