Orlando has a few different sports teams that both locals and tourists support. However, in recent years, soccer has become increasingly popular in the area. Soccer has become so popular, in fact, that we now have an annual international soccer tournament held at Camping World Stadium.
The Florida Cup is an international soccer tournament held every year since 2014. The tournament’s goal is to bring together top teams from around the world to play each other in exciting matches. There are four matches this year, to be played on July 25, 2021, and July 28, 2021. The match-ups are:
Arsenal vs. Inter Milan
Everton vs. Millonarios FC
The winners of the two matches will play each other in the final on July 28, 2021, and the losers will play each other on July 28, 2021.
The event also puts together various things that attendees can do, including games during the week that are fun for both kids and adults alike!
