Orlando City SC held a beautiful remembrance for the Orlando shooting victims

New, comment

On Saturday night, Orlando City SC had its first home game since the Orlando nightclub shooting. To honor the victims, as well as singer Christina Grimmie, who was killed a day before, the team placed balloons in an empty section of Camping World Stadium.

The entire stadium joined in remembering the lives lost with a moment of silence, which took place during the 49th minute.

Both teams arrived to the pitch with #OrlandoUnited shirts on. Both kits also included an additional #OrlandoUnited patch for the evening.

Every aspect of this game was planned in remembrance of those lost. The typical corner flags were also replaced with rainbow flags.
